Handwritten makefile first, then autotools if I'm going to let other
people see it.

If it doesn't come with Fedora dnf, I build it from source and install it
in the standard directories.

Typically, I use the parallel test harness that is built into Automake
as the test runner.  Using that test runner, I write each test as its
own scheme script.

For Guile I use Emacs, sometimes with Geiser.

No.  But I like the idea of Wisp.

I do most of my debugging of guile scripts in GDB.  I also have a
structured logging library that can write to the systemd binary log,
when I want to make a lot of debugging spew and look at it later.

For some scheme scripts, I want to edit as multiple files but then
assemble them into a single file, so I use M4 to let me include
scripts in other scripts.
