After looking through the website again i did find the procedure using make STATIC_TEXMACS, and using Guile 1.6.8.
However the build fails anyways with this error:

Objects/dyn_link.o(.text+0x1347): In function `symbol_install(string, string, void*&)': : warning: Using 'dlopen' in statically linked applications requires at runtime the shared libraries from the glibc version used for linking /usr/lib/gcc/i486-slackware-linux/3.4.6/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -liconv

But it seems that you can compile, you just get a problem
with the linking (namely, some library cannot be found) :
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-slackware-linux/3.4.6/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -liconv
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

After some googling, it appears to me that installing
the iconv library, cf. :

is rather likely the thing to do to solve your problem.

This address@hidden Guile compilation problem is
plaguing TeXmacs since 6 months now, so if
there is nobody else to have a look at this, I will
perhaps consider doing it (if it is feasible at all...).

By the way, are there any forums where i can post for TeXmacs specific help?

The one currently in the cc is the right one,
all the more because this problem goes a little
bit beyond my competencies & usual activities
in TeXmacs (although as I said, this problem
is lasting till a little bit long time, now...).

The two main forums for TeXmacs are :
Developers: address@hidden
Users: address@hidden

You can find all the details (as well as pointers on
the archives) at :

Best, Henri
