I guess (I will have to look at this) that there was a typo in the
configure.in that, when you type --enable-boehm it actually disables
it. That is my only guess. You do not need to specify this flag. ECL
will recognize whether you have the garbage collector installed or
configure its own copy. Please tell me whether it works then. Other
flags you do not need are --enable-shared, --with-tcp,
--with-cmuformat, --with-asdf, --with-clos-streams, --with-cmp,
--with-rt and --with-x.
