Ok. I have realized what the problem is. The MSVC build requireds three
empty directories msvc/c/ecl, msvc/ecl/gc and msvc/ecl/gc/private. Your
patches redirect ECL to other directories, namely msvc/ecl,
src/gc/include and src/gc/include/private, but this is not right. The
headers in those directories are not the ones that are required to build
the DLL.

As for the reason of the failure, I have realized that normally CVS does
not create these directories when they are empty. I have modified the
makefiles so as to ensure these directories are there by using simple
"mkdir" before building the program. This seems to solve the problem in
my machine.

These are CLOS bootstrapping problems. ecl_min has no error handling
routine (at least not until the whole of bare.lsp is loaded) and thus
crashes. I think I have fixed them now in CVS.
