Yes, but other gnulib-based projects usually handle that setup just fine.
There is probably some logic in the gnulib-provided 'bootstrap' script
that work out the required magic in a transparent way.

Ah, that is not yet done?  Then I can see the reason of the (for me)
unexpected behaviour of 'autogen.sh'.  I think that using gnulib as a
submodule would be the way to go --- that way, you can pinpoint the
exact revision of gnulib you want to use.

I'll try to update my guile installation then.
