[gambit-list] Trouble building gambit

The shared library thing might have been ./configure "remembering" a
previous configuration attempt. I did a git clean -xfd to remove any
such thing and indeed I didn't have to export LD_LIBRARY_PATH after I
did. But I still fail at: make -l4 from-scratch (sorry I used -j4,
it's about the same as -l4), in the same way:

$ (set -x ; git clean -xfd ; git reset --hard ; ./configure ; make -l4
latest-release ; ./configure --enable-single-host && make -l4
from-scratch ) |& ~/tmp/gambit.fail.1
make[2]: Entering directory '/home/fare/src/scheme/gambit/lib'

I tried with NixOS and had similar failures. I'll try again and send
an error log, if that helps.
