I just discovered this series of your patches in my mailbox, all covered with 
dust ;)

I'm under the impression they never got applied, right ?

Patch 2 is obsolete by now [1]. I have made some other changes in the source 
so aqbanking and bi_import are no longer dependent on guile.

Patch 3 seems to make sense to me, I'll apply it shortly.

And regarding patch 1, I'm a bit confused. While working on the bug mentioned 
below, Petr had written a patch very similar to your patch 2, yet it did seem 
to work without applying patch 1. So your patch series suggests GUILE_INCS has 
to be AC_SUBST before it can be included, but Petr's patch suggests otherwise. 
Is GUILE_INCS automatically substituted as part of the other macro's perhaps ?

I'm not that well versed in the autotools magic, so I prefer to ask first.
