This is on a foreign distribution, right?

The '.guile' on Guix System has a trick that automatically loads
readline when available:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ cat ~/.guile
(cond ((false-if-exception (resolve-interface '(ice-9 readline)))
       (lambda (module)
         ;; Enable completion and input history at the REPL.
         ((module-ref module 'activate-readline))))
       (display "Consider installing the 'guile-readline' package for
convenient interactive line editing and input history.\n\n")))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
