I've been looking at updating the dylan packages to the latest version. While
doing this I noticed that, as far as I can see, the dylan-interpreter and
dylan-compiler packages now effectively produce equivalent packages. Once
upon a time the dylan-interpreter package only built the mindy interpreter
but now, partly because of a bug in the configure script, does the same as
dylan-compiler. If I fix the configure bug then the make dies part way
through because it assumes more has been built than just the interpreter.
Clearly this is not a build path thats been exercised recently.
Given that, and that it seems to me anyone that actually wants a dylan will
want the full package, I propose to remove both packages and replace them
with a single gwydion-dylan package.
