Hello Aleix,

        I am sorry it took me so long to answer.

Certainly not, never ever :) - This is a distro thing, Upstream gnu
tool chained pkg(s) should never ever do that.

Exactly the opposite, that is, their setting is correct, both in
g-golf, guile-lib and guile-cv fwiw

        when a user does not configure passing the --with-guile-site=yes
        then _nothing_, nor the pkg scm modules, nor the .go files, nor
        any lib should be installed in the 'guile installed dirs'

        you mean the libg-golf/ i guess

        [ and you probably don't mean 
        [ $(libdir)/guile/$(GUILE_EFFECTIVE_VERSION)/extensions
        [ but GUILE_EXTENSION (provided by guile.m4

I agree with you that when a g-golf user calls configure passing the
--with-guile-site=yes, then libg-golf could be installed in


If not, then the current- g-golf setting is correct
