I've begun using the "system" egg in one of my projects and it's been very hepful. However, every time the executable is started, files are recompiled, even if they haven't changed. Let me clarify:
I load it like so:
When running, I get several lines of output like:
; front-end: file "front-ends/widgets" needs to be reloaded because it hasn't been loaded yet
; compiling front-ends/widgets.scm ...
/usr/local/bin/csc -s -S -O2 -d2 front-ends/widgets.scm -o /tmp/temp6bb7.so
It compiles to the "tmp" directory, every time. Ideally, I'd like the shared objects to stick around and only be recompiled if the files are changed. "build-system" works, but then the files are ignored by load-system (as per documentation).
Is this the expected behavior?
