More to the point, you will have seen guile-3.0.2's
move to guile-3.0.3's and then move back to

guile-3.0.3 was released with an accidental SO version bump: micro
versions of guile are supposed to retain and not break ABI/SO-version
compatibility.  guile-3.0.4 was released shortly thereafter correcting
the problem.  It looks as if you were unfortunate enough to have
installed guile during the hiatus period.

The best thing is to install guile-3.0.4 and recompile anything which
