On Antergos GNU/Linux using the Arch repos, when attempting to build modules that use Guile 2.2 - such as `guile-qnome` - while GDB is currently installed causes this error:
`configure: error: found development files for Guile 2.2, but /usr/bin/guile2.0 has effective version 2.0`.

To work around this I have to remove Guile 2.0 every single time I want to build modules that use version 2.2. This also means removing GDB, as it is a dependency. Once finished building and installing, Guile 2.0 and GDB will reinstall without issue.

The fixes I can think of are either: for GDB to port to Guile 2.2 or for Guile to allow multiple versions of the development files at the same time. The latter option would be better as languages Python can work just fine with multiple versions installed.
