This is great news! It seems that somehow the only problem is that 
during the build process the linker is passed a wrong location of the 
ECL shared library. Could you please send me a gzipped file with the 
output of the build and install processes? The problem must be where the 
final executable is linked, more or less at the end of the build process.

As for the other problems, 1) The sources in SF have this bug: they 
expect ECL to be compiled using the flag --with-cmuformat. That has been 
solved in CVS. 2) The test suite has some unbalanced parenthesis in one 
of the files. Until now ECL did not complain about these stray 
parenthesis, but this has been changed for greater ANSI compatibility.
