should texmacs on ia64 be removed?


Currently texmacs depends upon guile-1.8-libs . However guile-1.8
FTBFS on ia64 architecture [1]. According to [2] it is not going to be
fixed anytime in the near future. Lilypond, a package which also
depends upon guile-1.8-libs faced the same problem. It was removed
from ia64 architecture [3] at the request of the maintainer. I am
wondering if we should follow the same procedure for texmacs package
as well?

Another option is to reduce the dependency from guile-1.8-libs to
guile-1.6-libs. According to discussion at [4], we do not loose any
functionality due to this. What do you say?
