There is a guile command you can run to create the slibcat file as well,
though you also have to run it as root.

guile -c "(use-modules (ice-9 slib)) (require 'new-catalog)"

Running it shouldn't cause problems, so I guess we could stick
it into the install process, and maybe into the scripts of the
binary rpms.
