Are you always told 'define' no matter what procedure you're looking the
source of?

In Guile, there're many basic procedures implemented in C, and for them
we cannot jump to the source ('define' is one of them).  That could be
the cause, at least in some cases.

If that's the case, there must be something wrong with either Geiser or
your configuration.  What versions of Geiser and Guile are you using?
Another way of jumping to a procedure's definition is by using M-. when
the cursor's on it: does that also always fail for you?
