OK.  From Guile’s perspective, it’s not a bug that ‘makeinfo’ is needed
in this case.

I don’t think we would apply the patch because it’s uClibc-specific,

However, instead of patching ‘configure.ac’, you can run:

  ./configure guile_cv_use_csqrt=no

to achieve the same effect as the patch.

Let me know if it works for you!
