That's the system installation of Guile, not the one used in LilyPond.

LilyPond doesn't run any Guile executable. It just loads the Guile REPL
and runs it in LilyPond as LilyPond is linked with libguile.

Probably you don't have the necessary libraries installed. Wrong
architecture? Is your LilyPond a 64bit version?
