I am pretty confident it would. It pretty much what we do for windows
(and so, to promote software freedom we should do it for GNU/Linux
systems running on i86 machines). We have settings of environment
variables for windows done in main.c, and we could make this special
bundled build set LD_LIBRARY_PATHS to find the dynamic libraries,
GUILE_LOAD_PATH and something (I don't know what it is called) to find
the fonts. As this is GNU/Linux we are targetting it will be fairly easy
to sort that out.
What I don't know is what the configure step would be for this build -
the --prefix or some replacement for it. But it must be do-able, since
in the cross-compiling case you are building a denemo.exe which does not
know where the software will be installed.
I need to get a new machine pretty soon so I will be in a good place for
testing - I am hoping to go ultra-pure, with some completely free O/S -
just for the good feeling :). (My current machine is exhibiting program
crashes similar to those I had a while ago - particularly
compiling/assembling/linking which crashes every dozen runs. No idea
what is behind it - the kernel seems unaffected).

Well, that is what Josue does, but it doesn't let people with xyz-distro
download and try out Denemo without finding themselves potentially
struggling with conflicting package requirements. It is the ease with
which Windows users can try Denemo compared to GNU/Linux users that is
bothering me somewhat.
While typing this email the bug on Savannah has been fixed - could you
generate a candidate for 0.9.6? As you can see from the emails we now
have a new step in the release cycle - once a we are confident of the
release (and have given it the new version number) we need to send the
potfiles to to give translator teams a chance to
translate Denemo before we release.
