Hi Knut,

thank you for the script.

OK, I see how you build Guile directly into the LilyPond build
directory, and building Guile worked on first attempt.

I notice that upon each execution of the script Guile will be erased and
rebuilt from scratch. Am I right to assume that I could skip this step
for following builds?
And more, can't I build Guile once, into some other directory and rather
than rebuilding it each time place a symlink into the LilyPond
installation directory? This would be very useful as I tend to have
multiple builds in parallel.

I did so (and commented out make doc for now). First compilation failed
due to missing dblatex, but the second one failed with an error I didn't
really understand. Attached you'll find the tail of the build log - any
ideas what is wrong and what I can do?
