This documentation was out-of-date.  I have just committed updates to
master, which are not very good, but at least more truthy.

Basically compiled-file-name doesn't do any path searches.  It simply
computes a place in ~/.cache in which to cache the result of compiling

As the comment in compile.scm says:

;;; This function is among the trickiest I've ever written. I tried many
;;; variants. In the end, simple is best, of course.
;;; After turning this around a number of times, it seems that the the
;;; desired behavior is that .go files should exist in a path, for
;;; searching. That is orthogonal to this function. For writing .go
;;; files, either you know where they should go, in which case you tell
;;; compile-file explicitly, as in the srcdir != builddir case; or you
;;; don't know, in which case this function is called, and we just put
;;; them in your own ccache dir in ~/.guile-ccache.

Load (system base compile) then, no?

It doesn't use that path at all.  It uses %compile-fallback-path.
