Nice. 

While testing an installer based on this build, we noted that the 
recursive library search for symbols fails with a scheme error. I filed a 
bug report:
	https://bugs.launchpad.net/geda/+bug/1101309
It seems to be related to a not working getuid function. 

The PhD who student told me, the problem had already been present in the 
previous builds. He had tried to poke in the scheme code and succeded to 
disable the getuid check and set permissions of the files open to 
everyone. However, the paths build downstream in the library search code 
were defect. They showed signs of the inglorious  "/" vs "\" 
misapprehensions. In consequence, even though there was no getuid error, 
the component-library-search procedure still failed.

Anyone out there with good scheme proficiency _and_ access to a windows 
system?
