The Guile Reference Manual version 2.0.11 says:

        4.4.2 Readline

        To make it easier for you to repeat and vary previously entered 
        or to edit the expression that you’re typing in, Guile can use the GNU
        Readline library.

Which means you need to install the GNU Readline library if you want to use it:

        apt-get install readline-common libreadline6 libreadline6-dev

This said, if you really want to hack in guile, you'll do yourself a favor in
investing a little of your time to study and use emacs and geiser instead:
                For Scheme, a new Emacs mode is available: Geiser. It supports 
                and Racket (previously known as PLT Scheme). On Debian or 
Ubuntu, it
                can be installed with sudo apt-get install geiser.
