@email@example.com I know lots of good people put effort into automake but a giant expanded pile of shell and makefiles is nuts to debug and the whole autotools system is so hard to learn
@firstname.lastname@example.org it does mostly "just work" though... if someone else sets it up for you :P
Of course you'd prefer guile. Those m4 macros are a huge techical debt
Integrating java and clojure is way easier !
I made a Guile wrapper around Freexl. I used some m4 macros
But then Guile-git, g-golf and all those use different macros to do the same thing, I don't undertsand and that frustrates me
Now, for example, there' s no way that I can get Haunt to work on my Fedora workstation.
The Guix provided Haunt cant fins some scheme modules
If I check it out and build it it misses some other modules
And of course the macros in Haunt config.am are different than the ones I found in guile-git, guile-crypt, g-golf... 😞
