Do I understand correctly that you have executed the following:
./configure --enable-ecl

The reason I ask is that when I try to build Maxima + ECL via
./configure --enable-ecl, that succeeds, but then make fails with the
message "Cannot find out entry point for binary file", dunno what that means.

However I can build Maxima + ECL via the steps listed in INSTALL.lisp
and the resulting program runs the test suite without unexpected errors.

That suggests the binary-ecl/*.o files were not created.
Is there anything in binary-ecl/ ?

By the way: I am using ECL from cvs. The 0.9l release was a few months
ago and there have been a lot of changes. I don't know which changes
might be relevant to Maxima. My advice is to use ECL from cvs.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.
