Hmm, the bootstrap phase in gnu-build-system should invoke
`autoreconf -vif` if the package contains either a `` or
`` and does not contain a `bootstrap`, `` or
``. At least that what I get from reading the source:
gnu-build-system.scm:203 [0]


I also ran it on one of my projects that are using guile-hall, which
does not have a configure script and it build it just fine.

Maybe you have one of those bootstrap scripts that does not generate a
configure script?
