You just take the Guile 1.8.8 distribution (Git or tarball) to some
suitable directory and do
./  # I think
./configure --disable-error-on-warning --prefix=/opt/guile-1.8
sudo make install

and then you have to use something like
CONFIG_GUILE=/opt/guile-1.8/bin/config-guile ./

in order to configure LilyPond.

Compiling LilyPond will produce an inordinate amount of warnings on
current GCC.
