This is more likely to do with what you mentioned in the previous e-mail
about autogen thinking you were running Guile 1.4.  Autogen is smart
enough to know not to use SCM_SUBSTRP for Guile-1.8.x.

So maybe the real quesion is probably why would Autogen think you are
running Guile-1.4.

Autogen probably gets its idea about the version of guile by running a
script called guile-config (or sometime pkg-config)

Try running "guile-config --version".  If it exists, it should report
the version of guile you are using.  If it doesn't report the version of
guile that you are using, and it is returning 1.4.x, you probably have
an old version in your path.  Maybe you installed two versions of guile
(like in both /usr and /usr/local or /var or whatever) and the 1.4
version of guile-config is winning.

Good luck,

Mike Gran
