Well, it's waiting for more than just guile-1.8 to "finish building", there
are guile-1.8 build failures on all the 64-bit architectures that need to be
resolved before lilypond can be built against it, which means lilypond will
be out-of-date on these archs until this bug in guile-1.8 is resolved.
This seems to have been filed as bug #396119.

I wouldn't think that uploading 2.10.0 would be the best thing to do; your
best chances of getting lilypond 2.9 into etch are going to be to get
guile-1.8 sorted and let the current lilypond 2.8.7-2 slide in; if there's
time for uploads of newer upstream versions after that, all the better, but
I don't think there will be.
