Perhaps you should try manually installing "slib" to meet the requirement.

Did that, but no good :-(

this is what is installed vs. what is available;

rodney@elkys-home:~$ dpkg -l | grep slib
slib           3a1-4.2        Portable Scheme library

westk[@westk03]:/home/westk> apt-file search require.scm
scm: usr/lib/scm/require.scm
scsh: usr/lib/scsh/misc/require.scm
scsh: usr/lib/scsh/misc/require.scm
slib: usr/share/slib/require.scm
slib: usr/share/slib/require.scm

So it looks like what package is generating this error expects slib to be in location other than where it actually is.

You might try creating a symlink: "ln -s /usr/share/slib/require.scm /usr/share/guile/". If that fixes your problem, you might want to file a bug report on whichever package this is that's coughing up blood all over your shiny keyboard.
