As Daniel said, this doesn’t work currently.

Instead, you would use the (ice-9 popen) module for that:

  scheme@(guile-user)> (use-modules (ice-9 popen) (ice-9 rdelim))
  scheme@(guile-user)> (define p (open-input-pipe "date"))
  scheme@(guile-user)> (read-line p)
  $7 = "Wed Nov  7 16:05:02 CET 2012"
  scheme@(guile-user)> (close-pipe p)
  $8 = 0
