This worked quite well, except I had to compile GNU MP along the way,
which made me stumble over this little gem of web publishing:

However, before it reports

Libraries have been installed in:
After that it enters and leaves the srfi subdirectory and starts
complaining inside doc.

So I *think* Guile itself is compiled and installed correctly, but the
docs are not.
How can I easily check if the library is available? ldconfig -p | grep
guile only returns entries for Guile 2 in /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu (but
maybe ldconfig doesn't know about self-compiled libraries?)

I think I should not start trying this before having confirmed the
previous step.
