If a bug is anything that causes the execution of the software to
deviate from expected behaviour, then this is a bug. Fundamentally
guile-gnome looks to be correctly compiled, but the testsuite failure
causes the build to fail. The testsuite failure is related to guile's
use of libtdl.so's inability to load a libtool archive. I'm still
debugging libtdl.so.

Does that answer your question?
