bug#22342: Infinite loop when GUILE_FOR_BUILD == guile

I ran across an interesting problem while cross-compiling Guile 2.0.11 with MinGW.

"GEN guile-procedures.texi" sat in an infinite loop, due to meta/guile exec-ing itself in a tight loop.

This was because I had set GUILE_FOR_BUILD to "guile" in my configure invocation. In the uninstalled_env environment, "guile" is "meta/guile", not my installed version of guile in my PATH.

It might be helpful for configure to insist that GUILE_FOR_BUILD is an absolute path in order to avoid this happening to other naive cross-compiling users!
