/* File: "gsc-boot.c" */
/* Copyright (c) 2012 by Marc Feeley, All Rights Reserved. */
* Due to the meta-circular nature of the system, an executable
* version of the Gambit compiler (gsc-boot) is necessary to compile
* the .scm source files that are part of the Gambit runtime library
* into .c files. The Gambit git repository contains precompiled
* versions of these files. When Gambit is initially built, it is
* necessary to avoid generating these .c files (since an executable
* Gambit compiler is not yet available to generate them). This
* circular dependence is resolved by using a dummy gsc-boot program
* which does not touch the .c files obtained from the repository.
