Hi Bruce,

It looks like a fix to #:use-syntax processing was misapplied to the
1.6.x branch, back in January 2005.  (For the details, compare the diff
[0] on the CVS trunk with the diff [1] on the 1.6.x branch.



The boot-9.scm patch below (which I have not tested) should fix this;
alternatively you could change the mixp source to use a top level
(use-syntax ...)  form, instead of a #:use-syntax ... within the
(define-module ...)  form.  Or you could upgrade to 1.8.4.  I hope one
of those solutions is feasible!
