They exist in libgwrapguile-dev. Normally, the development library is
only needed when compiling. Since this is only a backport (and thus low
priority) I most likely won't spend any time tracking down why. Feel
free to look into it if you want. :)

For now, the solution is to apt-get install libgwrapguile-dev. I'll add
something about this in the Readme.
