Oh, I wasn’t even keeping track of this branch (isn’t it dormant, much
like Patrick’s previous work on Guilev2?); I’m just using master with
--enable-guile2, which does produce a usable build (minus the accented
chars problem).

Great! I’ve extracted the zip and applied the patches -- except the
last one, that’s already been pushed as

Well, they do appear to be supported. I initially didn’t notice any
difference because when launching the compilation from within
Frescobaldi, for some weird reason they’re rendered as interrogation
marks -- but when compiling from a terminal it works correctly. That’s
odd; I’m used to juggling between builds or git branches and
Frescobaldi never causes any trouble. I’ll need to investigate that
(could it be because of JIT-precompiled binaries lagging behind, or
something like that?).

Anyway. This is good news as far as I’m concerned; now I can use
guilev2 even with accented chars… Here’s to hoping guilev3 doesn’t
come and disrupt things even further.
