Thanks.  That was exactly what I was looking for.

I was going to castigate myself for not RTFM, but, I didn't commit that
particular sin this time.  GUILE_SITE_DIR and other Guile Autoconf
support flags don't appear to be documented in the 1.8 reference
manual, as far as I can tell.  

(I did find then in the 1.6.x reference manual, however.)

Thanks again,

Mike Gran
