Not really.

I pushed a patch that should allow Guile to be built with

However, there’s quite a bit of Scheme code that needs access to POSIX
functions now, notably the compiler.  So a number of file system access
procedures must be compiled for the compiler to work.

With the patch I pushed, ./check-guile doesn’t even work because
‘readdir’ & co. are lacking.  We could change this to compile them even
with ‘--disable-posix’, but the problem is that there could be even more
of them, which would defeat the whole point of ‘--disable-posix’, I guess.
