[gambit-list] Failing macos build of old sources with new Gambit

It's been a little while since I built one of my projects that it implemented in Gambit. I just did a fresh install of Gambit 4.8.9 on a system that has never had it installed before. Xcode is installed, and gcc 7 from homebrew is installed.

When I try compiling my app, I get the message:

*** ERROR -- missing or invalid linking information for module "/usr/local/lib/_gambit"

I've tried various incantations, but haven't been able to figure out what's confusing gcc or Gambit. The error occurs at the end of initial compilation of the Scheme source files. The Makefile compiles them to c, then compiles the c files to a static library.

I'm using the macos binary distribution from the Gambit home, which installs Gambit in /Library/Gambit and creates links to /usr/local.

Is there anything that springs immediately to mind that I'm likely to be doing wrong?

Thanks for any help.
