If I use hexadecimal character literals (e.g. #\x250F) in a skribilo
engine definition, compilation fails with this error message:
It could be that the character reader in Guile-Reader does not recognize
everything Guile’s built-in reader recognizes.  For instance, I had to
work around that in c9dc5ba5fcb9cef8f4a7bb87211e8e90bd87a9fc.

Could you check if that is the case?

;;; compiling skribilo/engine/plain-text.scm
That sounds interesting and would be a welcome addition!  :-)


OK. First, I looked at reader/skribe.scm. The definition of
&sharp-reader looks good to me, since it includes the predefined reader
"character", which sounds like it should accept all characters guile

So I decided to take a closer look at Guile Reader. I cloned the
Skribilo repo and the Guile Reader repo and attempted to rebuild from
source. First of all, I noticed that the INSTALL file of both projects
does not explain how to do that. You can't run ./configure because there
is no such file. So I tried autoconf. That failed. The internet told me
that autoreconf is the thing to use these days. I tried, but that failed
with this error:

libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, 'build-aux'.
libtoolize: copying file 'build-aux/'
libtoolize: Consider adding 'AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS([m4])' to,
