Description Christopher Smith 2023-04-04 16:04:47 UTC
As mentioned in the 2.24 changelog (, Lilypond 2.24's switch to Guile 2 caused a performance penalty because of JIT. The Lilypond build includes optional targets to pre-compile most of its Scheme code, but these targets do not appear to be invoked by the current 2.24 ebuild.

Additionally, the 2.24 ebuild does not appear to expose any font dependencies; these may be needed.

    media-sound/lilypond: add 2.24.3
    This handles the bytecode part of bug #903777 but not the fonts yet.

Fonts still need doing.
