What is it trying to do under /var?  It seems that the postinst script just 
calls "ldconfig" with no parameters.  Do you have a reference to /var 
in /etc/ld.so*?

I can't see how guile can be doing anything to cause this.  Unless you have a 
different version of guile to me (I have 1.6.4-17).  My guess at the moment 
is that there is something unusual about your system.
