Hi Jan,

You miss a ‘D’ here: ‘GUILE_LOAD_COMPILED_PATH’.

That’s probably because of the above.

> GUILE_LOAD_COMPILED_PATH="/c/Users/shookie/guiletest/lib(lib/guile/2.0/ccache/";./lib/bin/guile

> /c/Users/shookie/guiletest/lib/share/guile/site
> /c/Users/shookie/guiletest/lib/sh
> are/guile)

IIUC the difference is that the first element in the path starts with
c:/ instead of /c.  That’s probably because of the conversion that MinGW
does when reading the environment variable (see

So that means that the file names obtained by ‘configure’ should be
rewritten in Windows style, I suppose.  I’m not sure exactly how this
should be done though.  Suggestions?
