   Can you please suggest a way (if there is a generic one) to fix
   these kinds of old->new api problems?

Guile-SDL, Guile-PG, Guile-GDBM, Guile-WWW and other packages
available from <> use Guile-BAUX and
SNUGGLE (also reachable from that URL) for portability between Guile
1.4 and 1.8.  See bootstrap script for details.

Although testing for 2.0 has only begun (nothing definitive to report
yet), i mention them, anyway, in hopes that they might be useful for
reference (or better yet, experimental adoption / refinement) for

Aside from the sea of ‘#define’s that any portability framework
must necessarily include, the other distinguishing feature is that
the packages' .so files are installed under $(pkglibdir) instead
of in $(libdir), thus moving cross-(Guile-)version management
under the package maintainer's control, and making support of
multiple contemporaneously installed Guile versions somewhat
easier (at least in theory :-D).
