@cwebber Ah, right.
So if we can have that in perl, and the C pkg-config started put as SH tools, would it create a bootstrap problem if we'd write a pkg-config in Guile? Or it could be smaller Scheme.
I'm not sure if writing everything in Scheme is a good idea though, but it would be interesting.
Of course you'd prefer guile. Those m4 macros are a huge techical debt
Integrating java and clojure is way easier !
I made a Guile wrapper around Freexl. I used some m4 macros
But then Guile-git, g-golf and all those use different macros to do the same thing, I don't undertsand and that frustrates me
Now, for example, there' s no way that I can get Haunt to work on my Fedora workstation.
The Guix provided Haunt cant fins some scheme modules
If I check it out and build it it misses some other modules
And of course the macros in Haunt config.am are different than the ones I found in guile-git, guile-crypt, g-golf... 😞
