How to disable Guile?

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to build Make 4.2.1 from the release tarball on an antique
system. I've tried configuring with without a guile option,
--without-guile and --disable-guile. In each case the tail of
configure results in:

checking for working strcoll... yes
checking for working alloca.h... yes
checking for alloca... yes
checking whether closedir returns void... no
./configure: line 9660: PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG: command not found
./configure: line 9672: syntax error near unexpected token `GUILE,'
./configure: line 9672: `   PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GUILE, guile-2.0,
have_guile=yes,'make: *** [config.status] Error 2
Failed to build Make

Guile is one of those programs that is a constant source of trouble.
It often has difficulty building. If it does build, then other
packages can't seem to compile and link against it unless the version
numbers are an exact match. In fact, configure would probably fail if
Guile was present because I build Guile 2.2 from sources (I think this
is an Autotools problem). All in all, I prefer to avoid Guile

Is it possible to disable Guile support? If so, then how?
