Would the guile-lib developers consider merging this? Are there any
use-cases where this is inappropriate?

Thanks!

live well,

Hi Vagrant,

+CC David, which maintains Guile-Lib.

This looks reasonable to me.  If I understand correctly, it makes use of
the guile.m4 already provided macro (GUILE_SITE_DIR) instead of (poorly)
implementing it as 'guile -c "(display (%site-ccache-dir))"'.

Hello debian maintainers,

Certainly! Thanks for the report, it somehow did skip my attention
when i worked on this (a long long time ago ...), that calling
GUILE_SITE_DIR also defines GUILE_SITE_CCACHE

I'll fix this for the next release.

> Thanks!

I am the one who thanks (all of you)
David
