well, thanks, i thought your suggestion would work, but it does not. i
use bash as my shell, and it 'produces' the beep sound when entering
the 'beep' command in a xterm running bash but:

        guile> (system "bash -c 'beep'")
        bash: beep: command not found

is there an xwindow beep command? (i looked everywhere i could, but could
not find anything: 'beep' is part of the ncurses lib but i don't know how
to get access to it from guile, so thought about xwindow (xbell ?) but
could not find any such command
