Nice.  :-)

It could be avoided by changing just ‘configure’ (which this patch
already does actually), but it’s fine either way.

You can move that string to the previous line.

Here you should either modify ‘config/guile.m4’, in which case
‘autoreconf’ will have to run (that should be automatic), or modify
‘configure’, in which case the dependency on Autotools is unnecessary.

The latter is a fine solution.

OK with a change along these lines!
