Guile provides

SCM gh_eval_file_with_catch(const char *scheme_code, scm_catch_handler_t 

for just that reason.  It evaluates a file, and if an exception
occurs, `handler' is called.  The handler data type is declared like

typedef SCM (*scm_catch_handler_t) (void *data,
                                    SCM tag, SCM throw_args);

`tag' is the exception tag (a symbol like `misc-error', `out-of-range'
or something) and `throw_args' depends on the type of exception.
