OK. For Debian's purposes, we will stick s48's include files in
and the ones of scsh in
Debian users compiling s48 extensions will then explicitly add an -I
option to the CFLAGS, until the scheme48-config stuff gets sorted out.
We will support parallel installation of incompatible scsh versions
(e.g. 0.6 and 0.7), but maybe not of s48, until customising all the
paths and executable names becomes easier.
FYI, Debian 3.1 won't contain s48, nor the scsh install library, we
didn't make it. (It does contain scsh). The successor of 3.1 most
probably will have them both and maybe some other libraries /
Thank you for the discussion,
