Perhaps, yes, but I don't (personally) want to get into the object/lib
file location debate yet, because I know very little about libtool and
other aspects of the issue, and because I believe that other Guile
developers believe that there are good reasons for the status quo.
Also it seems very unlikely that the outcome of that debate would
affect the details of a GUILE_SCHEME_DIR macro.

You're welcome to continue that debate, of course, but to be honest
it's probably better to wait until Marius and/or Rob have bandwidth to
describe the problems that they see with Vorfeed's "obvious" solution.
