When I need a build tool, I typically use autotools.

When I don’t, my scripts use bash-indirection, for example when I want
to trigger auto-compilation of other files before the script starts, or
adjust the library path. See the maximum portability example on

For simple projects, I just run from the projects Mercurial

Also I use a Guix overlay to install Guile dependencies, and I install
user-tools to ~/.local/bin (along with ~/.local/lib/guile/2.2/ ).

hand-written tests and srfi-64.

Wisp (along with Scheme).

Bash, since I run my scripts with shell indirection.
