$GUILE_FOR_BUILD is used when cross-compiling Guile itself–i.e., a
native Guile is needed to cross-build Guile.
Now, using $GUILE_FOR_BUILD to build the native Guile itself would be
tricky, because there’s no distinction between the run-time load path
and the compiler’s search path (see ‘GUILE_CHECK_GUILE_FOR_BUILD’ in
