Guix without pkg-config

on a system without pkg-config, and with guile installed in a strange way (it needs to be called through a wrapper), the configure script of guix errors out with the following message:


checking for GUILE... configure: error: in `/home/enge/guix-0.1-src':

configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old. Make sure it

is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full

path to pkg-config.


Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GUILE_CFLAGS

and GUILE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.

See the pkg-config man page for more details.


To get pkg-config, see <http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/>.

See `config.log' for more details



But setting GUILE_CFLAGS and GUILE_LIBS does not change anything, and looking at the configure file, I do not have the impression that the presence of these environment variables is checked. I suppose that all this code is expanded from


in configure.ac. Could this be considered a bug in this macro? How about working around this issue by first checking for the variables inside configure.ac, and only calling PKG_CHECK_MODULES if they are undefined?


Does anyone see another easy solution?
