Hi All,

I maintain an add-on package to Guile.  I have a user reporting the following

;;; compiling /usr/share/guile/site/2.2/nyacc/lang/c99/ffi-help.scm
;;; WARNING: compilation of 
/usr/share/guile/site/2.2/nyacc/lang/c99/ffi-help.scm failed:
;;; failed to create path for auto-compiled file 

So my part of my package, including the file above, depends on 
If, on installation (presumably as root), bytestructures is not found, then 
only the
sources are installed.  Now it seems a user has bytestructures in his own path 
now he wants to use ffi-help, but it's not getting compiled.  I would expect
Guile to compile and install in the user's .cache directory if write to a 
directory (e.g., /usr/lib/guile/2.2/site-ccache) fails.

Am I missing something?  Should this be reported as a bug?
