See attached patch: It basically uses Guile's `version' procedure to
check whether we are using 1.8 or later.

No.  Those types and macros are actually defined in 1.6 as well.  It
just turned out that for some reason their definitions were not visible.

Anyway, such a feature test wouldn't help since 1.6 and 1.8 are
significantly different API-wise.

BTW, I think it should be possible to install both Debian packages
side-by-side, except the `-dev' packages.
