This is just a guess, but what happens if you do this:

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib /usr/local/bin/guile


With this it works!

I notice that there is an /etc/ file. Do I somehow need to update

Yes, you update it by running "ldconfig" as root. This needs to be done
when installing libraries outside of your package manager, not only for
Guile, but for essentially all packages containing libraries.

I agree that this will allow /usr/local/bin/guile to load /usr/local/lib/libguile*.

However, won't it also cause /usr/bin/guile (2.0.5) to load /usr/local/lib/libguile* (2.0.11) ? If not, what is the mechanism that tells /usr/bin/guile (2.0.5) to load /usr/lib/libguile* (2.0.5) instead of /usr/local/lib/libguile* (2.0.11) ?
