<rekado>the problem is that ffi-help-rt is autocompiled: compiling /gnu/store/ps1j32a2xjp71fc9n2rlfx15apvnag3p-profile/share/guile/site/3.0/system/ffi-help-rt.scm, which then fails with: unknown location: definition in expression context, where definitions are not allowed, in form (define *ffi-help-version* "1.05.1")
<rekado>I set current-language to wisp, so I suppose it’s the autocompilation of a scheme file that is at fault here
<rekado>that’s why loading (system ffi-help-rt) first fixes the problem
<rekado>now I just need to figure out why it’s autocompiled
<civodul>rekado: you can inspect the read and write calls with strace :-)
<rekado>there are 71 scripts to generate. I’m getting the derivs with (mapm/accumulate-builds lower-object scripts); then built-derivations and derivation-output-path for building them and getting their locations.
<rekado>with 71 scripts virtually nothing happens for 10 minutes or so
