The upcoming 1.6 has the error message fixed to give a better
indication of what guile was looking for when the link failed.
However, there's no way to get more precise info about exactly what
went wrong, without a redesign of the libtool ltdl interface to allow
it to return more than just a static error string.

Another thing that people should watch out for is that older
libtool/guile combinations were ok with (dynamic-link ""),
but this won't work anymore -- in most cases, you just need to change
the call to omit the extension (as Bill suggested), i.e. (dynamic-link

Hope this helps.
