I found that OpenBSD has its own copy of the Boehm-Weiser garbage
collector already as a package. It seems to work with the latest changes
in ECL. One just has to

1) Download and install the GMP package (optional)

   pkg_add -v ftp://ftp.leo.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.8/packages/i386/gmp-4.1.4.tgz

2) Download and install the Boehm-Weiser collector (required)

   pkg_add -v ftp://ftp.leo.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.8/packages/i386/boehm-gc-6.2.tgz

3) Configure ECL to use these packages

   CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/lib -g -O2" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib" ./configure --prefix=/usr/local

4) Build and install.

   make && make install

+AMD64 as the operating system locks when I try to run it under the
