build-system SYSTEMprocedure

Compiles components that are subclasses of <scheme-file> to dynamically loadable object files (using csc -s ...). Note that these files are ignored by load-system or compile-system, since these are not re-loadable on all supported platforms.

Use this operation for building compiled code that is installed as an extension or explicitly loaded by an application or Scheme script. In such a situation, build-system is similar to the make(1) tool or the make macro provided by the setup-api module.
