I've just found this problem in the bug tracker, but the issue is over
a year old, and there has been no reply so far:   :-(


The commit which broke things is
The fix is easy, I think: Add sllgen:make-rep-loop to a provide in
share/pkgs/eopl/private/sllgen.rkt again. I can build from source on
Linux, but I need a fixed version on Windows, too. Can I just grab
share/racket/pkgs/eopl/private/compiled/sllgen_rkt.zo from the
compiled Linux version and put that into the corresponding folder on
Windows? I've got no clue if the *.zo files are portable or not, but
at least the "shared" in the path indicate that they might be.
