Do you need thios information at compile time, or at the startup of
texmacs ?

Whith guile 1.4 installed :

% guile-config --version
guile-config - Guile version 1.4
% guile -c '(display %load-path) (display "\n")'
(/usr/share/guile/site /usr/share/guile/1.4 /usr/share/guile .)

With guile-1.6 and guile-1.6-dev installed :

% guile-config --version
guile-config: Command not found.
% guile-1.6-config --version
guile-1.6-config - Guile version 1.6.4
% guile -c '(display %load-path) (display "\n")'
(/usr/share/guile/site /usr/share/guile/1.6 /usr/share/guile .)

Please don't rely on guile-config in the texmacs binary. A user might
have guile runtime installed and not the guile development system,
or might have both guile 1.4 and guile 1.6 runtime systems installed,
but only the guile 1.4 development system.

In /usr/share/guile/1.4, resp. /usr/share/guile/1.6, which seems 
pefectly logical to me.
