Well, it is.

Oh, /me hits head in the wall, I didn't read INSTALL :/

Attached to this e-mail.

#define OPEN_MAX was a desperate try to make it compile. I glanced at
limits.h, saw OPEN_MAX there, wondered why it isn't defined, despite
the #include, so I added the definition.

/me notes that he probably didn't try hard enough to compile rscheme :)
