I'd drop them in /usr/local/share/program-name/foo.scm, but I'm
just following unix convention and I use the auto-tools to make
this user configurable. If your user is going to keep them in
their homedirectori then usually you can create a .prognamerc and
a direcotry .progname for files.

Can you distribute a program linked to guile in binary only? I
just checked guile-1.6.x is under the GPL and not LGPL so I don't
see how this is possible, unless you're meeting some of the other
requirements of the GPL.
