The GNU multiprecision arithmetic library, which is a dependency of
Guile 1.7/CVS.

Were you building 1.6, or 1.7/CVS?

Oh, that's nice, I didn't think of that.  How do you make the normal
Debian .debs install to the right location, though?  Presumably the
Debian .debs install with prefix /usr, and I thought that Maemo
required some odd prefix like /var/lib/install?

(Also, if the Debian .debs work out of the box, why did you try to
build in scratchbox, out of interest?)

Please let me and the list know if you make progress on this, so that
we don't duplicate effort.
