  [guile-pg and guile 1.8]

  I was hoping his guile-pg would work because it doesn't explicity
  state that a 1.4.x guile is required like some of his other packages

It works fine under 1.6.  What it needs is the feature, deprecated in
1.6 and removed in 1.8, of looking for a shlib when a module is used,
and loading it and running the init function.  The 1.8 way is to have a
scheme stub that dynlinks the module and exports the symbols.  So
guile-pg needs a new .scm file that does this, and I suspect that's all
that's required but I'm not sure.
