It will be a nightmare on iOS. While Android allows dynamic linking of libraries
(so you only need to provide the source code of guile to your customers) Apple's
AppStore forbids any dynamic linking. So, in order to fulfill the requirements 
Guile's LGPL you need to either distribute the source code of your application 
as well
or at least distribute your application's object code (*.o and *.a files) so 
customers can relink against a changed static version of libguile. But since 
only allows signed code and the relinking will break this signing the relinked 
won't run on a non-rooted device ... And since you seem to compile C++ code 
will rely on the compiler's C++ ABI.
