It seems guile-1.8.7 does not admit dynamic library file name extensions .dylib, but only .so, on Mac OS X (tried 10.5.8. PPC G4), despite the manual saying guile should adapt to local standards. The example in the manual sec. 4.2.1 works fine with
  gcc -dynamiclib -lguile -o libguile-bessel.so bessel.c
but not if changed to libguile-bessel.dylib, giving the error within guile: standard input:2:1: file: "libguile-bessel", message: "file not found"

On Mac OS X, it should probably look for .dylib first, and perhaps .so for backwards compatibility.
