this commit is a bit problematic:

it shouldn't be using "pkg-config".  instead, call PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG in (or maybe do AC_REQUIRE([PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG])), and then use $PKG_CONFIG.

the output of --cflags-only-I can be empty when guile is installed in the standard system path.  i guess what you really want to be doing is:
  $PKG_CONFIG --variable=includedir ...

rather than running awk on the version.h file directly, can't you delay all of that to compile time ?
