OK.... we're doing well here, aren't we? :-)

Can you tell us more about your platform?  I guess I'm not that
familiar with x86_64, what does that mean, and is it similar to either
of the Debian architectures ia64 and amd64 (where Guile is reportedly
building successfully)?  Also what version of GCC are you compiling

Also we could try to look more closely at the crash.  Is there a core
dump?  If so, you could look at by running

 ./pre-inst-guile-env ./libtool --mode=execute gdb libguile/guile core.NNNN

where core.NNNN is the corefile name.  If there isn't already a core
dump, you should be able to do something like "ulimit -c unlimited" to
enable cores, then run make again to cause the problem and generate a
core dump.

Once you're in GDB, type bt to get the stack, and if you can a few
prints to identify the immediate cause of the fault, and let us know
what that gives.

Thanks for keeping at this!  In the meantime, BTW, could you work
around this by using Guile on a less troublesome platform?
