[Mitch says:] Thanks for the thought, but I can wait a bit... 

Just in case it saves someone some grief, I also tried building on FreeBSD
4.8 - BE CAREFUL - let me warn people DO NOT build the port! - Before
updating my ports, it built with an old version of Guile - it ran - sort of
;-) I tried to update the ports and then it just kept making things!

I don't know if I missed anything stupid, but it tried to add gnome and
about a gazillion other things when I tried to build the new guile-1.6.5

Ugh.
