Now ecl build OK.  With the recent fixes to ECL FriCAS


(as of svn revision 160) should build using ECL at safety 0.
However, I must say that performance (speed) is rather poor.
I hoped that lowering safety to 0 (from default 2) would improve
speed, but even at safety 0 ECL based FriCAS is much slower than
FriCAS based on other Lisps.  For example to run test suite
ECL based FriCAS needs 2 hours on 1.86 GHz Core 2, while Clisp
based FriCAS needs 32 minutes.
