Here's a reply I received previously from Marc

It depends on your version.  In some of the recent betas the Gambit 
runtime contained a definition of a "require" macro.  This prevented 
SLIB to define "require" for its own use.  If that's the problem, after 
a successful "make", you should comment the following lines in 
lib/_nonstd.scm, and do "make":

(define-runtime-macro (require . rest)
   `(##require , at rest))

That should fix the problem.  If not let me know what issue you are
