Hello, as of the present is it possible to compile both gschem and PCB
to windows. If I recall, linking guile (lisp) was the issue. Has this
been resolved?

Hello, as of the present is it possible to compile both gschem and PCB
to windows. If I recall, linking guile (lisp) was the issue. Has this
been resolved?
Short answer: No.

Nobody seems to have been able to cross compile guile 2.0 for windows.
While searching forums and mailing lists for hints, I saw contributions
by Eli Zaretski on several occasions. So I contacted him. He has managed
to compile guile natively on windows with a 32-bit MinGW development
environment. He uploaded the result to sourceforge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ezwinports/files/guile-2.0.11-2-w32-bin.zip/download

I tried to insert these files into the MXE cross compile environment.
However, compile fails with errors. The error message looks more like c++ and
less like guile. But what do I know. MXE is meant to produce static binaries,
but the download of Eli Zaretski contains *.DLLs . This may be also be a blocker.

PS: Here is the error message I currently get from MXE:

So correct me if I'm wrong. Guile depends on glib, as things stand
either glib or guile are pulling in Linux system related stuff on
windows builds. Presumably guile's build configuration is messed up?
Or is MXE/mingw to blame?

Other important things? If I can find some spare time I might try to
build guile and/or its dependencies independent of any program. If
that can be made to work, then differences between the working and the
faulty might be identifiable (That's all a big maybe, depending on how
involved things get)
