Funny you should ask. I checked this yesterday,
and it still works, even though I hadn't looked at
it for about 2 years. But you need a guile
which has been compiled with "--with-static"
and "--with-threads". You also need to run
jack before starting the external.

What exact error message do you get? Just a segfault?
That probably means your guile misses "--with-threads".
(hmm, there should be a check for this in configure)

Does "guile-config info |grep thread" say anything?
It should print out "CFLAGS =  -pthread"
