Now I'm at:

~$ cd ../../usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/guile-2.0/bin
address@hidden /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/guile-2.0/bin$ ./guile

scheme@(guile-user)> (version)
$1 = "2.0.11"

Looks ok?
Next step would be (trying) to compile LilyPond with guilev2, right?
There is an option to do that, I vaguely remember. Let's see, if I find it ...

Then start tackling problems.
