We were just discussing this in the IRC channel.  Rob Browning (rlb)
is the guile maintainer, and for various good reasons he has removed
libguile6 from the distribution, to be replaced with libguile9.
gnucash, and any other packages depending on libguile6, need to be
recompiled against libguile9.  

I have cc'd this to the gnucash debian maintainer to inform him of the
problem, I can also file a bug or do an NMU (non-maintainer upload of
a recompiled version) if he wishes.
