I'm not a release manager and I don't know anything about Lilypond, so
maybe this is a naive question, but ... could you build it against
guile-1.6 instead of guile-1.8? Guile-1.6 is apparently available on
all arches in both testing and unstable. It looks like the last
Lilypond built against guile-1.6 (version 2.6.5-3) compiled OK on the
three problematic arches.
