The makefiles are automatically generated by GNU Automake and then
`config.status', so they are not meant to be human-readable (the
`' files are the human-readable source).

At any rate, Guile should normally build with MinGW, but I don't think
it builds with MSVC currently.  The build procedure with MinGW is as
under GNU/Linux (or other Unices), namely:

  ./configure && make && make install

Note that `make' must be GNU Make, not MSVC's `make'.

Could you report the exact error messages (or the `config.log' file)
that you're getting when following this procedure?
