Have you already started this? I'm especially interested in the
build-system, and will break that out into a separate piece, since I
intend to use it for the Guile-Library thing and possible at a later
point in Guile-Gnome. I can't wait for this being perhaps eventually
integrated into Guile (I suspect this might take *some* time to
happen). So if you haven't started tackling "porting" the build
system, it *might* make sense to wait for what I'll produce, which
will be a piece of software building on Guile, but not integrated into
guile-tools. This means just shipping it with Guile in the future,
making guile-tools tie it in, could be an alternative of a direct
port, avoiding duplicate effort.

Cheers, Andy
