Ian, did you happen to have a stale "guile-config" binary around in Guile's $abs_top_builddir?  At some point it switched from being there to being in meta/, but you could have been left with a stale build product.

Hi all,

If we run lilypond ./configure under meta/uninstalled-env bash on a machine where 1.8.7 is installed it hangs
as follows:

ian@nanny-ogg:~/lily-build-g2$ /home/ian/lilypond/configure
--srcdir=/home/ian/lilypond --disable-optimising --prefix=/usr/local
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for working metafont mode... ljfour
checking for kpsewhich... kpsewhich
checking for guile-config... guile-config

If I run exactly the same configuration in a Virtual Machine with guile
configured, compiled and installed the configuration runs to completion.

ian@greebo:~/lily-build-g2$ /home/ian/lilypond/configure
--srcdir=/home/ian/lilypond --disable-optimising --prefix=/usr/local
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

checking for guile-config... guile-config
checking guile-config version... 1.9.14
checking guile compile flags... -pthread -I/usr/local/include/guile/2.0
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating config.make
config.status: creating config.hh

    make all       to build LilyPond
    make install   to install LilyPond
    make help      to see all possible targets

Edit local.make for local Makefile overrides.

It's really tedious having to keep a full VM or laptop installation set
up to work around this inconsistency, is there any chance of fixing this
in the guile kit, please?  If not, how can we work around this in our

I think this has been the behaviour since Guile V1.9.11.
