My understanding is that the fix is ABI incompatible with earlier
releases of Guile 1.8; at least I get
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/code/guile/install/lib/ ./out/bin/lilypond -dhelp
./out/bin/lilypond: Symbol `scm_i_master_freelist2' has different size in 
shared object, consider re-linking
./out/bin/lilypond: Symbol `scm_i_master_freelist' has different size in shared 
object, consider re-linking

This is because scm_t_cell_type_statistics, the type of the two
symbols, changed size (got bigger), and this is usually a no-no for a
minor bugfix release. I'm not saying this makes sense (AFAICT these
symbols shouldn't be public), but it's the current situation and the
bugfix would require relinking all objects depending on the library.
