GNU Guile on a Ben NanoNote with command line history (readline support)

I have been hacking at the OpenWrt Makefile and now have command line history working within the REPL.

opkg install http://zedstar.org/guile/libgmp_4.3.1-2_xburst.ipk
opkg install http://zedstar.org/guile/libltdl_1.5.26-1_xburst.ipk
opkg install http://zedstar.org/guile/guile_1.8.7_xburst.ipk

Once installed setup a .guile file:

root@BenNanoNote:~# cat /root/.guile
(use-modules (ice-9 readline))
(activate-readline)

When you run guile now you should be able to use the up and down cursor keys to go through your command history etc.
