There is no $GUILE_LOAD_PATH on any of the systems I tested on.

I am quite puzzled myself. All I can do is make a wild guess: the
statically linked Guile tries to use the libc version on my system. My
libc is compiled with TLS support and for some reason Guile cannot
handle libc w/ TLS if it is statically linked. ./configure knows this
and issues a warning, that it won't be able to link Guile statically
(because I am running a libc w/ TLS).

Maybe your libc is compiled --without-tls? What platform are you working
