I tried your suggestion. It built for quite a few hours and was still 
going strong when I left it last night.  But this morning I found it in 
this state:

;;; Note: Replacing variable G7043 by its value

"-I/home/jcunningham/installed/ecl-0.9j/build/" -w -c 
"/home/jcunningham/installed/ecl-0.9j/build/lsp/format.c" -o
