[asdf-devel] GCL support

I'm told GCL can be compiled with
  cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.savannah.gnu.org:/sources/gcl co gcl ; cd gcl
  ./configure --disable-dynsysgmp --enable-static --prefix=$HOME/local
But it requires some symbols that are missing from the libnss or some
such in Ubuntu 12.04LTS
(which is a known bug in Ubuntu, fixed in the latest).

I'm not going to bother making ASDF work with it, but in case some
masochistic person
wants to learn about portability across Common Lisp implementations
the hard way,
that's the dubious exercise proposal of the day.

Maybe someone will even make a debian package out of it.
