Not entirely sure what you mean, but it would be possible to unpack
Guile's sources, include as a build input a built version of that same
Guile, then do

  make GUILE_FOR_BUILD=[path to native guile] -C prebuilt/32-bit-big-endian

then take the .go files from prebuilt/32-bit-bit-endian and define them
as an output for some guile-32-bit-big-endian bootstrap package.  Then
you could use that package as an input to another package that builds a
native PPC Guile, but having previously unpacked the .go files into
prebuilt/ on the PPC package, after the step in the existing Guile
recipes that scrubs prebuilt/.
