What does SIOD do with set! that's so unusual?

This insufficiently portable point at least is definitely wrong - it
builds on more or less any unix-like system, and uses autoconf so it
probably builds even on systems the maintainers have never heard
of. Has anyone here ever been unable to build Guile on a weird system?
Size and startup time definitely need to be addressed though.
