I see.  The problem is that Guile has no way of guessing the .18
extension (it’s a platform-specific extension computed by libtool.)

Debian has a similar policy IIRC, but they ship the .so file as part of
the ‘guile-2.0-libs’ package, perhaps as an exception:

Perhaps you could suggest that openSUSE do the same?
