Today I was looking into why I was facing the following error during ‘/configure’ step:

GUILE_PROGS: command not found
GUILE_FLAGS: command not found

This is because the ‘aclocal’ command fails to recognize guile.m4 file that is located at /usr/local/share/aclocal.

Even after I included this directory in the aclocal command itself by ” -I /usr/local/share/aclocal”, the error still remained.

Now I’ve found a workaround by manually copying guile.m4 file to the m4/ directory of drgeo and then updating the aclocal.m4 file using ‘aclocal’ command as such.

This may not be the best solution but it is a temporary fix till this issue is resolved at the core level (guile).
