guile14 does that:
BUILDLINK_FILES.guile14+=       guile/1.4/bin/*
BUILDLINK_TRANSFORM.guile14+=   -e s,/guile/1.4/bin/,/bin/,

The first links in all files from ${PREFIX}/guile/1.4/bin,
the second transforms their names so that they end up in
the buildlink3 dir's bin/, which is prepended to the path.
