Correction. The above mentioned guilev2 is _not_ the one I compiled
myself. Don't know where it comes from.

I found the correct one in:

~$ cd guile/meta/
address@hidden ~/guile/meta (master)$ ./guile
GNU Guile

Up to now I couldn't figure how to do so.

Thus, and to avoid any 64-bit-problems I've set up newest LilyDev.
Installing guilev2 there.

$ guile-2.0
GNU Guile 2.0.11

I managed to run
../configure --enable-guile2
without error and got a successful build with simple `make'

The very first file I then tried to compile contained nothing else then:

\version "2.19.36"
{ c''1 }

And already a problem. See attached cut-off png.

I think it's one of the encoding problems you already mentioned,
causing ly:wide-char->utf-8 not to work properly.

ly:wide-char->utf-8 is directly used in markup-commands \char (as
already said) and \concat, as well as in \tagline and (but commented)
in some definitions of

ly:wide-char->utf-8 seems to be defined in lily/

1. Does it make sense to proceed with GNU Guile 2.0.11 or should I try
to get GNU Guile to work?
2. What does the patch you mentioned cure already?
3. We have a branch
Makes sense to checkout it?
(It should, ofcourse, I'll test tomorrow)

Well, that's my current state, to tired to continue today.

So far, cheers,
