You can help Guile by setting the `GUILE_LOAD_PATH' environment variable
to `/usr/share/guile/1.8/'.  Then you can start Guile and look at the
value of the `%load-path' variable so see what paths it contains in
addition to this one.

Alternatively, when configuring, give the prefix in Windows format, i.e.
./configure --prefix=c:/msys/1.0

or equivalently
./configure --prefix=`cd /usr && pwd -W`

While the MSYS build environment provides a POSIX emulation layer useful for running configure scripts and makefiles, the mingw version of guile is a native Windows application that has no notion of MSYS-specific paths like /usr.
