Embarrassing. Typo. I really appreciate you still putting up with me here :)
With the correct variable name it doesn't recompile, the eventual result of running it is the same though: the program hangs whith the last output being loading q.scm. Which is strange, since that doesn't seem to be a very complicated module.
Also it doesn't seem to be a module used during the build process.

Hi Jan,

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

That’s probably because of the above.

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?
