Could you send the config.log file?

Thanks, I sent it now, but as I mentioned, I think my failure to repeat the
unsuccessful build was due to having installed libboost-regex without reconfigure.
After libboost-regex was installed --with-included-regex wasn't needed, but
it's possible that it actually was my install of libboost-regex which fixed the problem.

Installing in the build tree sounds like a bad idea.  If you want to run
Guile without installing it, you can do so by using ./meta/guile (see
also “Using Guile Without Installing It” in README.

Yes, I am aware that it is risky, but I've done so for 15 years now, and
it seems to work fine, the great thing is that all specifics for one version
is on one dir fork only, so I can easily copy an evironment between machines.
I do in a similar way for python/cython, as I prefer to have all things needed for
development related to a specific version collected in one place to assure compatibility. It may be a good idea to add an extra level though.
