I had a problem running just "make" with essentially

./configure GUILE_CONFIG=/usr/local/tmp/guile-1.8/bin/guile-config

until I figured out that specifying GUILE_CONFIG kept our configure
script from looking for a GUILE executable.  This was fixed by using

./configure GUILE_CONFIG=/usr/local/tmp/guile-1.8/bin/guile-config 

The Guile executable was needed for generating some manual page I think?
This failed for the first round, but the first round left a stale file
that then managed to get to completion.

This got recently changed in master so the stale file was not left
around, and the first failure did not help.

I haven't reported the GUILE_CONFIG/GUILE dependency problem so far.
Probably not related to your problem, though.
