Guile and Readline won't play together

Hello folks,

I've checked the guile info and man pages, and the relevant docs in
/usr/doc and /usr/doc/Cygwin, as well as a search on 'guile readline' in
the archives, without success on this one...

I cannot get readline to work in guile. Creating, as suggested on the
page, a ~/.guile file containing:

     (use-modules (ice-9 readline))

results in:

      ERROR: In procedure dynamic-link:
      ERROR: file: "libguilereadline", message: "file not found"

(By contrast, (use-modules (ice-9 popen)), for instance, works fine.)

In fact, there are files called libguilereadline.{a, dll.a, la} in
Now /usr/lib is not in my PATH, normally, so I tried prefixing it, with
the result on firing up guile:

  assertion "(!*pargz && !*pargz_len && !before) || ((*pargz <= before)
  (before < (*pargz + *pargz_len)))" failed: file   
  "/usr/src/libtool/devel/libtool-20020502/libltdl/ltdl.c", line 548
and after typing Enter (because the above just sits there):

  Aborted (core dumped)

Taking /usr/lib off the front of the path reverts to other, "file not
found" behaviour.

My installation of guile is straight off setup.exe, including the guile,
guile-devel and guile-doc packages, unmodified apart from the one-off
experiment with PATH.

The output of cycheck -svr is attached as cygcheck.txt.

Any pointers, please?
