CVS tree is up to date and
./configure --with-cmuformat && make && sudo make install

works well. When I do :

I get the following error :
[LeMac:ecls] narberd% ecl
dyld: ecl can't open library: /lib/ecl/libecl.dylib  (No such file or 
directory, errno = 2)
Trace/BPT trap

I made a /lib directory (there is not such a directory on MacOS 10.3.7), 
I made a symbolic link between /usr/local/lib/ecl and /lib/ecl and it 
works :
[LeMac:ecls] narberd% ecl

I did not search a lot, I cannot tell more.

I made
make test

and I get that (I cut the begenning) :

;;; Doing "ecl_chap12_spec"
;;; Doing "ecl_chap14_cons"
Unmatched right parenthesis, #\)
Broken at READ.
rm -f *.plc
make -C ansi-tests > ansi-tests/log
make[2]: *** [ecl] Error 138
make[1]: *** [test] Error 2
make: *** [test] Error 2
[LeMac:ecls] narberd%

I will investigate this evening.

Before I received your message, I tried the sources on SourceForge 
(ecl-0.9e-fix-1.tar). It was better than yesterday, no problems with dpp 
and read.d. But I get that error :
ld: Undefined symbols:

After some search, I tried with ./configure --with-cmuformat. It works 
better, I could compile and install, but I never could run ecl, even 
after my symlink. When I go back to CVS, I am afraid that I kept the 
cmuformat option.

A bientôt,
