Making libunistring optional

Here’s an attempt to “reduce the number of dependencies” of Guile.  The
approach, as suggested by Bruno Haible, uses Gnulib’s
‘libunistring-optional’ module, along with the 22 (!) unistring modules
that provide the functionality we need.

When libunistring is available, it is used as before; when it’s not,
those modules are built and linked into libguile.

I had become convinced that this is a good idea, and a simple way to
make our user’s lives easier.  Yet, this adds 184 source files to the
tarball (would be more if we included tests), so I’d like to hear
