Make sure you have g-wrap and guile installed after that install slib like this
from the slib directory:

mkdir /usr/share/guile/1.4/slib  (or whereever you installed guile to)
cp * /usr/share/guile/1.4/slib/
guile -c "(use-modules (ice-9 slib)) (require 'new-catalog)" "/"

after you tell guile to use the slib schemas then it should be able to compile

I may be wrong though but thats how I got it to compile
