"Works  for me" is almost always guaranteed to result in "breaks somewhere 
else" :-)

Depends on how you define "installation problem". The function scm_lock_mutex
seems only to exist when libguile was compiled with thread support - which it is
_not_ on Linux/PPC Ubuntu (probably the same on Debian) ...
The build script (makefile in disguise) has the following:

 # If you change this please change the debian/control qthreads entry and the
 # arch-specific .install targets below too.

 ifeq ($(findstring 
 ENABLE_THREADS := --with-threads=yes

So, no threads on Linux/PPC here.  Maybe you need to test  USE_THREADS  in
