I would like to get this resolved so I can put up a "how to" page
on my site. I know Gary V. Vaughn got version 4.x up, but it did
not use Guile. That *is* the sticking point. I am forwarding this
to him and the Guile and CygWin lists to see if anyone has experience.
You're not the first, but I don't use Windows (much) and I haven't
heard the details of the one rumored success.
P.S. If you would be kind enough to let me know what tweaks
you needed to apply to build AutoGen under CygWin, I
would appreciate. Thanks!
