No idea why... 1.8 is basically obsolete.

Basically any project that doesn't work with 2.2 or 3.0 I would consider not maintained. > I guess lang/gcc9 should be added as a build dependency and the > package modified to use it. It's not really that it needs 9 but that 10 isn't ok. This seems like a combination of a a bug in the old guile and new gcc warning fussiness. It's not clear that force-requiring 9 is the right approach. Have you filed a bug with texmacs that it doesn't work with 2.2 and 3.0?
