Previously I also thought that setting ‘geiser-guile-load-path’ is not
enough as it would only set the %load-path, because Geiser starts Guile
like this (<some-dir> comes from ‘geiser-guile-load-path’):

  guile ... -L <some-dir>

while it should be:

  guile ... -L <some-dir> -C <some-dir>

to set the %load-compiled-path as well.  However, I've just found that
geiser sets %load-compiled-path internally in its Scheme code, so the
current recommendation in the manual should probably work (I didn't
check it, as I prefer to set environment variables).

BTW, according to the commit message at
it looks like Ludovic was the person who proposed this change ;-)
