      Last time I checked, this was broken on armv7 for almost all distributions except Debian-based ones.

        Shame to see yet another JIT only supporting closed ISAs. Wonder if there's any chance of a port to ppc64 and/or RISC-V?

          Looks like it is still broken on ARM:

          Code:
                3787 Illegal instruction     (core dumped) | GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE=0 ../meta/build-env guild snarf-check-and-output-texi > guile-procedures.texi

            It looks like they are using a fork of GNU Lighting as JIT compiler, which supports ppc and riscv. So it is probably a mater of time/interest/hardware to get it working.

              Not having to boilerplate with let/letrec is appreciated.
