I mean it’s sophisticated: creates build sub-directories for the host
and build, runs configure and make in there, etc.

Given that Guile has only two files to be compiled for the build machine
and that they use only stdio.h and stdlib.h, I think that we can find a
way to do what we want without resorting to something as sophisticated.
