Huh?  I checked out gnulib but I don't see any `gnulib-update'
commands or scripts or anything.

...However, I think the issue may be a simple confusion between
strings.h and string.h -- when I copy string_h.m4 from the latest
gnulib to Guile's m4 directory (which already contained strings_h.m4),
everything seems to work (i.e., autogen generates the appropriate
scripts and I can configure and make successfully).

This seems to be in line with the spirit of the gnulib project, so if
it seems to be the de facto method for other projects, it wouldn't
hurt to do it for Guile as well -- that's my vote.
