Yes, I think so -- provided that I indeed succeeded in finding all the
places where file names and path lists are created from directories
returned by C APIs.  You are in a better position to judge that, as I
still have only a very vague idea about which part of Guile does what,
both in C and in Scheme.

In Emacs, some of the file and directory names recorded during the
build and startup come from argv[0] and from prefix-relative directory
names computed by configure.  Is there something similar in Guile, and
if so, where do I find that?
