Humm... that looks like a problem related to patch #1405.

In and there was, a problem with old versions of
GUILE because the file-exists? primitive defined by texmacs shadowed
the file-exists? primitive defined by GUILE core which was used in
internal module handling code.

The shadowing actually occured only in versions<1.6. In later versions
guile primitives are in the (guile) module and texmacs primitives and
publicly defined functions are in (guile-user).

I cannot see what may be causing this problem. Maybe texmacs
mis-detects the guile-dialect at configure time...
