I agree that when you want to use a C library that's already there, the
state of FFI in Guile is awesome.  However, you sometime need to write
your own C code for low level stuffs.  For example, I require C for
developing custom memory allocators, fast audio mixing with SIMD,
multi-threading with OpenMP, etc.  These require many tweaks in the
build system to integrate correctly with Guile at compile and run times.
