I think you made the right decision to go ahead with guile for now.
You can always release the next version/update of guile using mknetrel

Ok.  It was just that I really wanted to strive to unite efforts,
esp. after your compassionate post about packaging...

But don't give up on mknetrel -- it is GOOD that cgf is going slow
and careful.

Yes, of course it is. At times I wish for our dictators to be a bit
more benevolent, esp. after several long night hacking sessions. It's
easy to get a bit frustated upon a reject.

Slow and steady wins the race.  You don't have reach the "ultimate
solution" with mknetrel right away.  Come back to it after lily-1.66,
and see how you can work with cgf's requirements.

Sure I will.  I'm just always a bit impatient.  I already resubmitted
patch #2 (debug), and made some suggestions for changes in #5 (split).

Jan et al.,

Let keep the conversation about building a cross-compiler automatically going. I think CGF is being rather stubborn about it and doesn't see the potential benefits for the end user. What probably should happen is the build cross environment script should be in a separate cvs tree and maintained apart from mknetrel. When things get properly situated, then we could release a package that contains these scripts for people to download and use as they see fit. Perhaps that could be build method #3.
