Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-10-15 11:29:58 UTC
Carrying this in guile ebuilds can cause breakages like bug 590536:
        # texmacs needs this, closing bug #23493
        dodir /etc/env.d
        echo "GUILE_LOAD_PATH=\"${EPREFIX}/usr/share/guile/${MAJOR}\"" > "${ED}"/etc/env.d/50guile || die

And, since we are the only downstream polluting the global environment in that way, we are alone hitting that random bugs it can cause

What I see in Fedora is that this hacks that are needed only by texmacs are only used for that package at build time and vars are not polluted for all:
make DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT install STRIP=/bin/true
export GUILE_DATA_PATH=%(guile1.8-config info pkgdatadir)
export GUILE_LOAD_PATH=$GUILE_DATA_PATH/%(guile1.8-config info guileversion | cut -f 1 -d ".").%(guile1.8-config info guileversion | cut -f 2 -d ".")/ice-9
cp -r -f $GUILE_LOAD_PATH $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/TeXmacs/progs
chmod -f 755 $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/TeXmacs/progs/ice-9

Just saying here so it is not lost in the noise of bug #590536, this hack was present in lisp overlay and caused no harm to gnucash.
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-10-15 16:24:13 UTC
Err, scratch that I was reading the wrong diff.
Comment 3 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-12-04 11:58:41 UTC
texmacs is not even compatible with guile-2 (it will likely need to use the future 1.8 slot for the two reverse deps that are still needing the old version), hence, we could drop the hack from guile-2 ebuilds finally (that would solve bug 590536 too as gnucash is using guile-2)
Comment 4 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-12-04 12:05:51 UTC
[master 547a917] dev-scheme/guile: Drop texmacs hack from guile-2 as it's not wanted (and neither needed for guile2 as texmacs is not using it), see bug #597184

Then I suppose this bug can be closed?
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-12-05 08:35:51 UTC
No, texmacs still need to carry the hack itself instead of guile-1.8 ebuilds (or guile-2 if it starts to be compatible with guile-2 in a far future)
