your improvements to the script make it waaaaaaaaaaay cooool! 
Thanks a lot to Andi and you. 

I bet you tried to compile goffice as well but it didn't work so far. Somehow 
it didn't work for me right now as well, although I recall it did work at my 
office's computer. Whatever. Here's what I did to get goffice to compile, in

as well is similar to g-wrap: In each gw-foo.scm that has a command 
(dynamic-link "libgw-foo"), the library name needs to be changed into 
"libgw-foo-0". Maybe you could already come up with some scripting magic that 
does this for all files...
