Hi all,

(Is this offtopic for guile-devel? Please let me know.)

I have packaged and made available for download Guileconf 0.1, the initial 
release of a Guile-based autoconfigurator tool. The aim here is to be an 
alternative to Autoconf, and not a drop-in replacement. Guileconf generates 
configurator shell scripts like Autoconf; however, its design inherently lacks 
two important Autoconf features: bloat and complexity. This makes it suited for 
smaller packages where Autoconf and friends sometimes seem to hinder more than 

I dream of one day seeing Guileconf used for Guile itself (thus helping to 
ameliorate the autotool hassles I once encountered when attempting to build 
Guile from CVS). But that day is far off if ever and besides, in an ideal 
world, Guile would bootstrap its own build process the way SCM does today.

Savannah project page is here:

Sorry, no web site yet. Feel free to send improvements, patches, etc. my way. 
If you're brave, you might want to use it in a project of your own and give it 
some real world burn-in.
