By "latest guile" do you mean 2.0.x?  We'll need to work out a way to
have both 1.8 and 2.0 in the distro for a while, as not all
guile-dependent packages have been ported yet to the latter.  Let's
discuss this further when you're ready.

I am currently testing 2.0.11 but ffi test is failing

False alarm.  The test is trying to load strerror(3) from the guile
process itself; that doesn't work on Cygwin because our dlsym(3) does
not resolve symbols in dependent DLLs (contrary to POSIX IIUC).


After octave rebuild I will package it.
Any preference of the header location ?

Also 1.8.8 need a rebuild as some dll's are in
/usr/lib instead of /usr/bin
