Ok, my bad.

But I do have a ~/usr/src/guile/guile-core/  Only when I
     automake Makefile

it generates Makefile in.  That's why I needed the automake $(find
 -name ...) command.

No, that's because I forced automake on all .am's there are.

That's what I did:

    13:27:27 appel ~/usr/src/guile$ cvs -z3 co -r branch_release-1-6 guile-core

Still, the ice-9 directory depends on it's own guile, which is bad.
Also, the -ldl library flag isn't added automatically.

Btw, I'm running latest debian/unstable (on powerpc).

:-) Is that a coincidence?  I still think that automake is a broken
concept, I like LilyPond's stepmake package a lot better.
