the 1.7.0 series of Guile has now a new --with-thread option:
"coop-pthreads".  From NEWS:

    The "coop-pthread" (or shorter: "copt") thread implementation will

    give you the same basic behavior as the "coop" option, but
    hopefully in a more portable way.

application that uses Guile threads, or generally know something about
threads, I would like you to test and review what I have written.

Configure "--with-threads=coop-pthreads".  The new code is in
