How many people are using guile 1.3 (not 1.3.4) and can't easily switch?

OK.  Well it's unfortunate that redhat didn't separate the library
package from the development package and make it so that you could
leave the old libs installed in parallel with the new ones, but I
suppose there's nothing we can do about that now unless we're going to
ship our own guile 1.3 rpms :>

To get guile 1.3 working I'll have to install guile manually (because
AFAIK there aren't any debian packages for that version anymore), so
it'll take a little bit longer to figure this out.

Actually, if anyone's got guile 1.3 installed on a redhat system, and
they're interested, could you install the latest version of g-wrap,
try to build gnucash, and send me the result?  Then I can probably fix
it by just looking at the diffs for the right two versions of g-wrap.

That'd save some time, but it's not a big deal either way.
