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.
