Thanks for giving it a whirl.

If you left the demo running any length of time, you might have found
it can get itself wedged, burning up CPU in the GC or otherwise being
naughty.  I have a fix available in my git repo.  If you have a clone


you should be able to pull my Gtk.  You might want to merge it on a
branch from master.

        git checkout master
        git branch my-Gtk
        git checkout my-Gtk
        git pull git:// Gtk

If you just want to build it (not hack it), this should work:

        git fetch git:// \
        git checkout matts-Gtk
        (cd src; ./

That's just like the pull except my Gtk branch was not merged with
your master branch -- just stored as your matts-Gtk branch.  Do not
commit on top of matts-Gtk or your next fetch cannot "fast forward"
the branch... or my grok of git is no good. :-)

A patch file should be available "real soon".  My web pages are
lagging while my scripts get gitsterized.

I know I am trying to escape $top_srcdir there, but I don't want to
duplicate prhello.scm.  I was just sort of hoping...

It works for me with "makeinfo (GNU texinfo) 4.11" on Ubuntu Jaunty.

Do you use a multi-architecture build setup?

I hope the six weeks(!) it took me to reply did not seem hopelessly
unresponsive.  Relativistic time dilation is a bitch.
