I don't 100% understand everything you've tried, but I seem to have
got it working. I installed those srfis into ~/local/lib/r6rs/ without
changing any of the directory structure, and I'm using your iota test

I get the error:

henk at korhal ~ $ plt-r6rs test.scm
default-load-handler: cannot open input file:
"/home/henk/local/lib/r6rs/srfi/1.ss" (No such file or directory;

But if I change the priority and use
instead, I get {1 3 5 7 9} as I should.

Not sure why this happens, if the srfi paths can cascade in one
direction, why not the other?
