Can it be modified to install files in the standard locations instead of its own /usr/lib/guile-lib directory? This can be done by adding 'moddir=/usr/share/guile/site/2.2 godir=/usr/lib/guile/2.2/site-ccache' to make command line. Currently Guix 1.3.0 cannot find guile-lib even if the package is installed.

checking if (htmlprag) exports `%strict-tokenizer?'... no
configure: WARNING: The Guile-Lib requirement was not satisfied (>= 0.2.7);
Some features such as the Go importer will not be usable.

However, values recorded in the .pc file doesn't change if we modify the installation path by make command line.

The following patch allows this to build properly for guile 2.2.

Adding this clause to PKGBUILD allows it to compile

prepare() {
  cd ${pkgname}-${pkgver}
  sed -i 's/ 2.2/ /g' configure

failed to build due to the following error:

configure: error: found development files for Guile 2.2, but /usr/bin/guile2.0 has effective version 2.0

It would be nice if the info manual was included.

It doesn't install any more:
ERROR: Missing package() function in [...]/guile-lib/PKGBUILD
