Hi :)

How do you handle it, for the record?

I assume you are using pthreads-w32?

You can build bdw-gc without threads, and then build Guile without
threads.  In my builds I was doing --enable-threads=posix.

You passed the `GEN guile-procedures.texi' phase?  If so, things are
already going well.  That's the first time the newly built Guile is
used, and if it went through it means at least you have a functional

This problem sounds similar to something Eli Zaretskii reported:

   The next problem is here:

          GUILEC ice-9/eval.go
        In unknown file:
        ?: 5 [boot-closure #t #<catch-closure 231fd40> ...]
        ?: 4 [catch-closure]
        ?: 3 [primitive-eval ((@ # %) (begin # # #))]
        ?: 2 [chmod #<input-output: ice-9/eval.go.9IiPxC 6> 438]
        ?: 1 [boot-closure system-error "chmod" ...]
        ?: 0 [delete-file "ice-9/eval.go.9IiPxC"]

        ERROR: In procedure delete-file:
        ERROR: In procedure delete-file: Permission denied

   This happens because Guile calls fchmod, which is #define'd to -1 on

However the code is different now, than it was when Eli made his report;
now if you don't have fchmod (as mingw does not), chmod only accepts
strings -- and here it seems that we are trying to chmod a port.  I will
see what I can do here.

No I have not.  I would like to do so, but am not really equipped for it
at the moment.  Your feedback here is really appreciated, thanks :)
