I'm at a loss. I have libtool-2.4 installed in /usr/local and I get this error when 'make'ing after running
../configure --prefix=/usr/local --libdir=/usr/local/lib \
[.... making lots of stuff ...]
../libtool: line 5989: cd: (libdir): No such file or directory
libtool: link: cannot determine absolute directory name of `(libdir)'
make: *** [libguile-2.0.la
] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/ian/Documents/FP/guile-2.0.11/build/libguile'
make: *** [all] Error 2
Another minor issue is that the configure script seems not to know about the readline-6.3 which I have installed in /usr/local:
checking for rl_get_keymap... no
checking for rl_getc_function pointer in readline... no
configure: WARNING: *** GNU Readline is too old on your system.
