Making the symlink is a practical solution.  It is definitely easier
than making autoconf macros.  

This brings up another question.  Should %load-path should generally
include /usr/local/share/guile/site by default?

Arguments in favor: it would keep symmetry with the emacs $(lispdir)
directory as described in the GNU coding standards. [1] 
Philosophically, can something be "site"-specific and not be "local"?

Arguments opposed: don't fix what ain't broke.
