The problem seems to be that that the 'libguile' directory is somehow
being added to the C include search path, although it should not be.
The error message above implies that line 431 of /usr/include/string.h
includes <strings.h> (it does on my system), which is obviously intended
to pick up a system header.  Instead, libguile/strings.h is being picked
up.

I don't see -I. or equivalent on the command line above.  Are you adding
"." to CPATH, C_INCLUDE_PATH, or some similar environment variable?
Note that an empty path component is typically interpreted as ".", so
two adjacent colons, or a colon at the beginning or end of the path
variable, could also explain this.

> Happens with 2.2.5 and 2.2.4

Note that Guile 2.2.4 was released almost a year ago, and you're the
first person to report this problem, so I suspect it's something unusual
in your build environment.

If the ideas above don't lead to a solution, could you send us more
details, e.g. the complete set of environment variables and arguments
passed to ./configure?

      Thanks,
        Mark

In other words, it is trying to create libguile/scmconfig.h, but it includes
libguile/__scm.h  which includes  libguile/scmconfig.h, therefore.... build error.

Happens with 2.2.5 and 2.2.4
