I've been snooping around, and discovered an interesting thing regarding
guile on OSX.

The process for finding the relevant bits of guile for snd seems to rely
on using guile-config, an executable created when guile is installed.  But
installing guile-1.6 via fink on OSX results not in this executable, but
rather on one called guile-1.6-config.  Similarly, guile is actually named
guile-1.6, etc.  I was having trouble in that I would provide the
GUILE_LOAD_path on the command line, but snd still would think I had no
guile installed.  I added links in the directory where guile-1.6-config
lived, linking it to guile-config and linking guile-1.6 to guile and so
on, and boom!  the config found guile.  this might be an interesting fact
to pass on to others trying to do this install.
