Problem should be fixed (I don't have access to a Linux machine to test fix). Thanks!

Nice try, but just pulled changes via git, recompiled and get the same error message ...
Any ideas? Thanks!

It is almost impossible for the problem to remain as the code is now in a (cond-expand (windows ...)).

I installed Ubuntu on my machine and indeed it built fine.

What this seems to imply is that the heuristic used to determine what OS you're running is failing. It uses a Gambit internal function: system-type.

Can you launch gsc, execute (system-type) and tell me what result you're getting?
