  Ah.  Do we have someone from the gnucash world who can say what it
  should look like or how it should work?

It's not that complicated.  With the new slib, you get behavior like

> guile
guile> (use-modules (ice-9 slib))
guile> (require 'stdio)
ERROR: Unbound variable: with-load-pathname
ABORT: (unbound-variable)
guile> (version)

This is running the 1.6.8 prerelease announced on the list a week or
so ago, and with NetBSD pkgsrc slib 3.1.2, which is 3a2 in slib
The basic issue is that ice-9 slib is no longer providing all the
procedures that slib expects, but slibs guile.init does.

> guile
guile> (load "/usr/pkg/share/slib/guile.init")
guile> (require 'stdio)
guile> (printf "foo %d\n" 2)
foo 2

Whether there is something deeper with gnucash, I don't know, but I
have no reason to think so yet.
