Let me get this straight.  You're running Debian, and want to get good
at LilyPond by building gcc from source?  Well, best of luck to you
but consider this:

   * LilyPond is part of Debian.  You can always try your luck
     installing lilypond from testing/unstable.
   * I wouldn't advice gcc-3.0, rather use 2.95.x.  But whatever you
     do, please just use the Debian packages.
   * INSTALL.txt lists the packages needed to compile LilyPond on
     Debian (mostly for developers that want to send patches).

  libguile-dev: /usr/bin/guile-config

Which may be libguile6-dev on woody.  But yoneed more stuff, see the
install instructions.
