Thanks, that was a big help.  The above didn't quite work, but it led
me in a workable direction.  For the record, this is what I have at
the moment, with a little context:

     \time 3/8
     < {df'4^#'(columns((music "scripts-trill")))^#'(columns((music 
"accidentals--1"))) (} { s8...  \grace {[c!8 df!8]}}> ) d!16. d,!32
     df'8.^#'(columns((music "scripts-trill")))^#'(columns((music 
"accidentals--1"))) ( < df!8.^#'(columns((music 
"scripts-trill")))^#'(columns((music "accidentals--2"))) {s8 s32.. \grace {[c!8 
df!8]}} >
     ) d!8 c,,!4

(I'm not sure that the "columns" are necessary -- I'm groping a bit!)
The output is OK, but not optimal.  The accidental above the trill
mark is too large, the slur cuts across the trill in a rather
unfortunate way, and I'd still prefer a wavy line after the trill (in
the second measure, going the full length of the measure over both
noteheads, underneath the auxilliary accidentals).  But I can live
with this.  I'm impressed that lilypond can produce very serviceable
output without any fine-tuning (although there seems a rather sharp
divide between the high-level interface -- c b s4 etc. -- and the
low-level one).
