I've explained this a few times.  external-source isn't as flexible
as people may want it to be.

The source package isn't picked up because the top level uses an
explicit curr: which makes any other files at that level invisible.  It
doesn't seem like there's any reason to have an external-source for this
package at all since there is an unreferenced guile-1.6.7-4.tar.bz2 at
the top level of the directory alongside a guile-1.6.7-4-src.tar.bz2.

I've moved the guile-1.6.7-4-src.tar.bz2 into libguile12 and renamed it.

I've also removed the "curr:" from guile's setup.hint file.
