Hi Carl!

We are stuck for release because GUB is not working properly.

GUB definitely is NOT broken.

On a lot of distributions GUB works without problems.

If there is a problem with a specific distribution (I think Archlinux is such a 
case) it is always easy to run GUB inside of an ubuntu chroot environment.

If you want to try it: The attached script instminubugub installs such a 
minimal ubuntu system inside of /home/`whoami`/minubugub, chroots to that 
environment, installs a few additional ubuntu packages (git, libs, TeX, etc.), 
installs gub and uses gub to build current lilypond master.

The instminubugub script takes no arguments, execute it as an ordinary user.

The assumptions about the system are minimal: 'whoami', 'wget', 'sudo', 
'chroot' and 'xz' must be installed, it neeeds a standard /etc/fstab, the 
system must be connected to the internet. And, of course, gub needs a lot of 
disk space ...

On my i7-4790K system instminubugub took a bit less than three hours to install 
the ubuntu-chroot environment and gub and to successfully build git master
