In order to build GNU Guile (or at least its version 2.x), it is important not to pass the “-j$N” flag to “make”. Without the flag, the compilation will be faster (counterintuitively I admit), because some of the build tasks spawn as many processes or threads as the CPU cores on the machine, and with the flag, they get congested and the build is slower. Cheers!
