I got guile-1.5.4 and installed it on one machine with no problem.
On another I did ./configure;make as before and it died with:

I get the impression that it is supposed to build without 'makeinfo',
if this is not so it should be mentioned in the README or INSTALL.

Well, who cares about documentation anyway?  I tried
  touch libguile/guile-procedures.txt
after which the make command finishes but the final program just says

address@hidden guile-1.5.4]$ ./libguile/guile
ERROR: no code for module (readline-activator)
address@hidden guile-1.5.4]$ echo $GUILE_LOAD_PATH 

Installing it doesn't help.
