Hmm...  It would be nice if we could reduce rather than add to the
central build system.  For example, I'd like to be able to install
some sort of `MIT Scheme core', and then separately build and install
Xlib support, Gtk+ support, &c., if I so desire -- or even separately
build and install Edwin and LIAR.  It is pretty silly that we
currently just hook all applications and libraries directly into a
monolithic Scheme build.  But I guess I need to make the mythical
reasonable module system happen...
