Installing MEEP with apt-get is very easy. However, typically on a cluster, this is not available which makes compiling MEEP rather cumbersome. Although the page for installing MEEP is helpful, this page outlines the procedure more practically. I would like to add that libctl didn't configure with Guile 2.x It worked with Guile 1.8x.
Update for ver. 1.2 of MEEP. Apparently fixed.
1 Meep 1.2 (20 July 2012)
2 3 * Fixed to work with Guile version 2.x (older versions still work);
4 requires libctl 3.2 or later.
