Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen,

Last night, I added "ikarus Scheme" version 0.0.3 in the main tree(under
dev-scheme/ikarus/ikarus-0.0.3.ebuild). From ikarus website I copy-paste:

"Ikarus Scheme is an optimizing compiler, so your Scheme code will run
fast without the need to port hot spots to C "for performance". With an
incremental compiler, you don't need a separate compilation step to make
your program run fast. The best part is that the compiler itself is
fast, capable of compiling thousands of lines of code per second."

Its license is GPL3. 

I have keyworded it ~x86, and only runs on machines with x86
processors which support SSE2 instruction set(so and the sse2 use flag).
If you have a pentium4  processor or above, you run ~x86, and you are interested,
please, test and report(1) :)
