Ikarus Scheme

Bug Description

Me and Ikarus' libraries just don't seem to get along. Shouldn't this work?

$ cat
(library (lib1)
  (export def-dat)
  (import (rnrs))
  (define-syntax def-dat
    (syntax-rules ()
      ((_ x) (define-record-type x)))))
$ cat
(library (lib2)
  (export b?)
  (import (rnrs) (lib1))
  (def-dat b))
$ cat
(import (rnrs) (lib1) (lib2))

(def-dat a)
(write a?)
$ ikarus --r6rs-script
Unhandled exception:
 Condition components:
   1. &error
   2. &who: expander
   3. &message: "cannot export unbound identifier"
   4. &irritants: (b?)

It is unspecified (as far as R6RS is concerned) whether this should work or not. In Ikarus, it should work. Will fix.

Awsome! (Though it is surprising that it isn't specified. Exporting a var defined using a macro that you imported seems like such a common thing to do.)
