The problem is that hardly any standard distributions build GNU make
with Guile support enabled.  If this was used basically it would end up
requiring anyone who wanted to use automake to build their own version
of GNU make first.

And, we'd have a catch-22 where Guile (if it used automake) would need
a GNU make built with Guile before it could be built...
