By re-implementing do you mean re-writing Make with Guile?  That ought
to be realistic, but I really do not see the point of it.

What is more realistic and useful is to make a build system in Guile
where the DSL that replaces Makefiles is Scheme.

I think this already exist in GNU make. Recent versions of it can be extended in GNU guile:

BTW, my pet open source project (which uses GNU make without the guile extension) is the RefPerSys open source inference engine project (mostly coded in C++, with the ambition to generate C++ code or machine code thru GNU lightning), see (and amateurish website ....). Contributors are welcome.
