That's fine.

Not quite; the build is potentially cross, and the guile we just built
may not run on the host (autoconf "build") machine.

It may be there should be a file of stack limits in various places,
found by autoconf tuple.  That's somewhat ugly, but avoids breaking
cross builds.

An alternative is to detect the cross situation and use a fixed value
then.  That doesn't impair self-hosted builds.
