I'm trying a mailer I've never used, so apologies in advance if this gets mangled.

Guile 1.4's optional argument syntax isn't directly compatible with much of
the Scheme code in Snd -- it's a long story, but, in brief, I thought Guile 1.6 would be
out and "official" more than a year ago, and got caught in-between versions.
Load fix-optargs.scm (in the Snd tarball) before anything else, and it ought
to be ok.

where did you install Guile (i.e. what --prefix argument to configure?) --
Snd tries to use the program guile-config to figure out where everything is.

GSL is the Gnu Scientific Library, a re-implementation of netlib (or some
such name -- I'm forgetting ancient history) -- math junk. It is optional

Simplest would be to get the latest Guile (1.5.n I think). Let me know
if you have any problems.
