The patch 'removed' the hard coded 'full path' of the lib set at
configure/make time, which i think is a good thing - and it indeed
install the lib in $prefix/lib - which is, imo, unless a configure
option allows 'another location', the right thing to do - but,
see below ...

It is possible, with a bit of work, to install the lib in the
GUILE_EXTENSION directory [provided by guile.m4], but be able to look
into this in the 'immediate near future' - feel free to patch the patch
of course.
