It seems that alloca.h must be included on HP-UX even when Guile is
built with GCC.

That's odd, it's meant to be a builtin outside of strict c89 or c99

__builtin_alloca is available but not alloca.

Actually, /usr/include/alloca.h contains the following lines on HP-UX:

#ifndef alloca
#  define alloca(x) __builtin_alloca(x)

A #define to __builtin_alloca might be better than alloca.h.

Yes, that's much better than to rely on the fact that GCC and HP's compiler happen to provide the same builtin.

Moreover, it seems that the alloca problem isn't HP specific at all. I also get a warning when I compile the following program under Mac OS X with GCC 3.3 and -Wall:

        char *p = alloca (20);
        *p = 0;
        return 0;

allocatest.c: In function `main':
allocatest.c:4: warning: implicit declaration of function `alloca'

What about the following code?

#ifndef __GNUC__
# ifndef alloca
#  define alloca(x) __builtin_alloca(x)
# endif
