I'm not sure, the machine in quesion is five miles away and has
no Net connection, but I think you are right.  In that case the
build process is OK (which is good because I understand it not),
  Bug: A bad .guile file kills the whole interpreter with
    a message that does not mention .guile.

I made a patch that "works".  I have not run it through diff and
all that, because I'm lazy and in a hurry and I am not sure I
like the way I did it.  It puts a error catcher in the file
loading code.  Maybe there is a better way, or there should
be a more general way, of appending to a thrown error message
as it flies past you.  Maybe some people want first dibs on
handling errors from files they load.  Maybe it should go
into the epilogue of the dyamic-wind around the call to load,
or be done only while loading .guile.

from libguile/load.c, line 88, right after proc swap_port:

/* if an error is thrown from the file (port) being loaded,
   print a message to current standard error port with
   description of source of problem; re-throw the same error
static SCM print_cur_loadp(void *p, SCM tag, SCM throw_args)
  scm_display(scm_makfrom0str("While loading from port "),scm_cur_errp);
  return scm_ithrow (tag, throw_args, 1);


static SCM
load (void *data)
  SCM port = SCM_PACK (data);
  while (1)
      SCM form = scm_read (port);
      if (SCM_EOF_OBJECT_P (form))
      /* added --KW */
      scm_internal_catch (SCM_BOOL_T, 
       (scm_t_catch_body)scm_primitive_eval_x, form, 
        (scm_t_catch_handler) print_cur_loadp, NULL);
      /*rm      scm_primitive_eval_x (form);   -- KW*/
