There is a problem with the old garbage collector, which seems the only
one that works in OpenBSD, as the latest versions of the Boehm-Weiser
gc. do not work in this operating system. I keep working on fixing this.
Help with either issue (old or B-W garbage collector) welcome :-) OTOH,
I have a copy of OpenBSD running under qemu, so testing of ECL on this
platform is no longer a problem.
