Could not reproduce it here with a new checkout either - possibly my
old tree was out of whack.  Sorry for the bogus report.

I admit my communication style is a bit ... terse; I managed to make
an ass out of myself e.g. on the LispOS mailing list (still the prime
example for too much talking and no results), so I prefer to send
patches at the moment.  Besides, you can't have a cup of coffee over a
mailing list.  But, if I have understood correctly, you are in the
process of changing work, apartment and country; that you have time
and energy _at all_ to invest in ecl at the moment is no small feat,
and is appreciated very much.

The top-level configure script files if there are spaces anywhere in
$srcdir, changing the next-to-last line to 

"${srcdir}/configure" --srcdir="${srcdir}" $*

lets me start the build.  I can post definite success / failure only
tomorrow, because cygwin compiles slow as molasses on my machine here.
However, on my linux machine, builds take as long as ./configure alone
under windows, so I managed to notice that tcp support seems to be
broken at the moment (compile failure in alloc_2.d, hmm).

No patches at the moment, since I am off christmas shopping; may you
all have enough time, money and loved persons-to-give-presents-to to
do the same :)
