It's fairly easy to install guile and lilypond by hand

This is how I install packages separately. I have a usr/ tree (with
src, lib, share, etc. ) sitting in my home directory.  then

     cd ~/usr/src
     tar xzf guile-1.6.tar.gz
     cd guile-1.6/
     configure --prefix $HOME/usr/pkg/guile 
     make all ; make install

     tar xzf lilypond-1.7.12.tar.gz
     cd lilypond-1.7.12/
     configure --prefix $HOME/usr/pkg/lilypond
     make all ; make install

The script does the following


        for a in bin lib info   ; do
          cd ~/usr/$a/
          rm `find -type l`
          ln -s ../pkg/*/$a/* .

of course, I have added ~/usr/bin/ to my PATH, and ~/usr/lib/ to my
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. For lilypond, you would have to source the
appropriate shell scripts on login.

When you are done with a package (say lily),   you do

     cd ~/usr/pkg/
     rm -rf lilypond-1.7.12
