Hello bug-guile readers,

The tarball at ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/guile/guile-1.8.1.tar.gz
has a configure script that uses the script config.rpath.  But
this script is not shipped with the tarball.  This can cause
"interesting" and weird bugs, if I remember correctly, on some
systems at least.  It shows up as a warning during configure.

A likely cause for the omission is that gettextize is needed to
install this for you.  Also I think when you update the package
to use Automake 1.10, a gettext-induced check for the presence
of the config.rpath file will be enabled (so this doesn't happen
