I am pleased to announce that GauchoCAD[1], which as you know is a CAD 
made with Gambas, is in good health, at the moment the program is 
capable of opening autocad DWG plans (thanks to LibreDWG[2]) that close 
We are using the library with the Shell instruction, which is not the 
best in terms of performance.
We need some help in order to do something with Extern or directly a 
gb.component that uses this library. Of course, if someone does this it 
will be useful for many other projects not just GauchoCAD.

We need read/write dwg and dxf files more efficiently

Here we are an script to install LibreDWG in the system

     git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/libredwg.git
     cd libredwg
     sh autogen.sh
     ./configure --enable-trace
     sudo make install
     make check
     cd ..
