Re: Test fail in Guile-1.8.5

Hi Andy, Neil,

I was originally using 1.8.5 because 1.8.7 is currently in the testing rather than stable category in gentoo's portage package tree.

I tried building 1.8.7 on the same debian installation but, had the same problem as before. The same test fails.

Using the 1.8.7-r2 ebuild in gentoo, the same test passes. The gentoo guile-1.8.7-r2 ebuild includes a patch called guile-1.8.7- fix_tests.patch which I assume is responsible. This patch modifies the a makefile in the test suite so, hopefully this fixes a bug in building or running the tests rather than covering up a genuine problem. The patch references gentoo bug 295093 which might provide more information.

In the absence of problems, I am going to assume that the author of this patch knew what he/she was doing and that all is well.

Could you try the same thing on guile 1.8.7, the latest stable release?
I don't know of any test failures in that release.
