ECL uses _no_ global variables. All common data is stored either in
cl_env or in cl_core. Both are C structures with different fields. The
former is per-thread data, the second is made of constants or data
common to all threads. path_max should go into cl_core. Perhaps it
makes sense to define it _always_, because I do not like configuration
flags to populate the ECL headers.

I will gladly commit any patches for supporting Hurd.
