==== Description: ====
GNU Mes aims to help create full source bootstrapping for GNU/Linux
distributions such as GuixSD as part of the bootstrappable builds

It consists of a mutual self-hosting Scheme interpreter written in
~5,000 LOC of simple C and a Nyacc-based C compiler written in Scheme.
This mes.c is being simplified to be transpiled by M2-Planet.

The Scheme interpreter prototype (mes.c) has a Garbage Collector, a
library of loadable Scheme modules-- notably Dominique Boucher's LALR,
Pre-R6RS portable syntax-case with R7RS ellipsis, Matt Wette's Nyacc
--and test suite just barely enough to support a simple REPL and
simple C-compiler: MesCC.

Mes+MesCC can compile an only lightly patched TinyCC that is
self-hosting.  Using this tcc and the Mes C library we now have a
reduced-binary-seed bootstrap for the gnutools triplet: glibc-2.2.5,
binutils-2.20.1, gcc-4.7.4.

==== Other Software Required: ====
Mes can be built as a bootstrap package, or as a regular package

Bootstrap requirements

Regular build requirements (additional)

GNU Gcc, version 5.5 is known to work
GNU Guile, 2.2.x or 2.0.x, version
2.0.13 or later
GNU Make
GNU sed
