Do the self tests pass on your system? I installed guile and found out
that the tests stop at:

Making check in tests
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/nmav/cvs/gnutls/guile/tests'
make  check-TESTS
make[3]: Entering directory `/home/nmav/cvs/gnutls/guile/tests'
guile: uncaught throw to gnutls-error: (#<gnutls-error-enum The
Diffie-Hellman prime sent by the server is not acceptable (not long
enough).> handshake)

I have no idea with scheme, but if you could pinpoint which things are
failing on the tests, I could try and see what is wrong.
