Guile portability?

I can't find any statements on the Guile pages about portability: what
operating systems does it support, how well are they supported, etc.?

Before I started using Guile I naively assumed it was basically just a
parser and so it was almost trivially very portable.  Now that I see all
the advanced features and capabilities it strikes me that Guile is not
nearly so easily ported to non-POSIX-style systems as I assumed.

The docs say it's "the official language for the GNU operating system",
but what about non-GNU OS's, such as AIX/Solaris/HP-UX, the various
BSD's, or Windows, or MacOS, or even more specialized environments like
OpenVMS, AmigaOS, etc.?
