AFAIK this is a UNIX limitation, using setenv within a program will only
change environnement variables for *this* program. Try to execute the
script shell:

export FOO=bar

and FOO won't be set in the "parent" shell. Type directly:

export FOO=bar

and it will be set. Point is the "export" command is interpreted by this
parent shell, so it has means to set in within this shell. No idea how
to do this with Guile, except setting your environnement variable from
Guile and then launch your program _from_ Guile. The way bash does 8-)

Hope this will help.
