OK.  I got this working in my tree last night, and I also updated
our guile-readline to use the non-deprecated AC_INIT,
automake, etc. syntax.

  AC_INIT(guile-readline, 1.7.0)
  AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([foreign no-define])

Though that raises an issue that I haven't figured out how we want to
handle yet.  As above, autoconf now wants the package name and version
to be literals.  Hence our trick of using GUILE-VERSION and $PACKAGE
and $VERSION won't work in this new arrangement.

One possibility would be to make the canonical source for
versioning information and just write GUILE-VERSION from there, and I
guess guile-readlne would do the same for LIBGUILEREADLINE-VERSION.
Although this would mean that we'd have to update the version in and guile-readline/ independently, by-hand.

That doesn't seem like a showstopper to me, though.  I can just add it
to the release procedure.
