Dear all,

here comes attached another attempt at improving MAKE-BUILD. It is a
drop-in replacement for the file with the same name in the original
source tree. The logic behind ECL's facilities for system building is
now more clear (see BUNDLE-SUB-OPERATION) and it has some strict
rules, such as imposing that programs be monolithic.

The behavior now is defined as follows.
* Monolithic programs, shared libraries and FASLs proceed in two
steps: they first build a static library for each component and then
link everything together.
* Monolithic static libraries simply compile everything and stores it
in a single library file.
* Non monolithic static libraries only compile what belongs to this
module and links it into a library file.
* Non monolithic FASL files act similarly, but the output is a FASL.
* Non monolithic shared libraries compile the object files in this
module and then dynamically link to the shared libraries of other

This code is not yet committed. I send it to the mailing list to
gather your feedback.
