   Oh! guile-gnome is seperate story, you should have made it explicit! :)

   I think Rotty or Wingo can answer that. I don't know anything about
gwrap and therefore guile-gnome internals.

   GMP? What is that? :) I don't rememeber needing to install anything
other than what was already installed by sb/maemo but it was a few
months ago and i can be wrong.

   I did create the debs and tested them too but I don't have them
anymore. :( But it was easy and i can make them again. But is there
really a need? The .debs for guile provided by the official debian arm
repos. works out of the box.

   I don't think that requires any 'porting', we just need to wrap the
hildon widgets. I can start to work on this but first i'll need to
learn goops and g-wrap.

   No problem. :)
