Compilation to *.scm currently needs to be done via the host JVM Clojure REPL. This output can be manually compiled to object code via Gambit's gsc compiler. Some manual massaging of paths and load directories needs to be done at the moment.

Gambit seems to be a promising compile target for Clojure:
- (scm* [] (load "_meroon") (load "core.o1"))
+ (scm* [] (load "core"))
