For example, my "libxpm-menus.la" contains the following: # Directory that this library needs to be installed in: libdir='/usr/lib/scwm' That should be it. Guile 1.3 does not take LD_LIBRARY_PATH into account. This is clearly a bug. Second, as it already scans the .la file, it should go all the way, and use the libdir hint as well. This is not required, but would certainly be a good idea. Checking the directory where the .la file resides can be done last.
