Yes and no.

address@hidden:/usr/local/tmp/lilypond$ git grep min-length
Documentation/included/   (define (min-length lst n)
Documentation/included/    (1+ (min-length (cdr lst) (1- n)))))
Documentation/included/     (let* ((n (min-length names 2))

Part of the code uses it but it is not properly defined.  It's not as
