There are no temporary lisp files, only temporary C files. However,
the C core itself only has one. If you want to debug ECL with gdb,
just do it, and ignore the missing ECLINIT* files, which just contain
trampolines to the actual library initialization files. If the
debugger does not let you do that, then (setf c::*delete-files* nil)
to force ECL to keep copies of the C files that it generates.
