Forgive my slowness (both in responding and in understanding), but I'm
not sure I'm clear about what possible fixes you're suggesting.  The
two possibilities that I deduce from the above are:

1. Add config.rpath to Guile CVS and EXTRA_DIST in the top level
   Makefile, so that it's always, unconditionally present.

2. Make sure that whoever prepares the release has Automake 1.10; then
   automake --add-missing will install config.rpath as a side effect
   of the AM_GNU_GETTEXT declaration in configure.in.

Is that right?  Are there any other possibilities?
