For information.

it is known that TeXmacs compiles fine with guile 2.0,
but does not execute.
On opensuse 12.3 the configure command of comment #1 yields a mix of guile 2 and 1.
The attached patch was necessary to force guile1.

(file #30692)

I added the information on Guile 1.8 to the website as suggested by John Hunt, but I leave the bug open since we may really want / need to add support for Guile 2.0.

Your configure command solves the same problem on OpenSUSE 12.1 with science repository,
and the Qt version looks great, thanks !

Maybe it would be worth adding to the section 4.Configuration and build options
something like

TeXmacs does not support guile 2.0.
For systems where both guile 1.8 and 2.0 are installed the following should be used :
<your command>

TeXmacs does not support guile 2.0 but I still do not understand how to correctly specify that we want to link against 1.8. To overcome the difficulty should be enough to configure via something like

./configure --enable-qt \
GUILE_CFLAGS="`pkg-config --static --cflags guile-1.8`" \
GUILE_LDFLAGS="`pkg-config --static --libs guile-1.8`" \
GUILE_DATA_PATH="`pkg-config --variable=datadir guile-1.8`" \
GUILE_VERSION="`pkg-config --modversion guile-1.8`"

but I haven't tried this on Ubuntu.

Tested on Ubuntu 12.04. If guile-2.0 is installed, then configure raises no error but the compilation stop with the message
