[Ecls-list] progress on Maxima + ECL

I have committed some more patches for ECL on the Maxima CVS
branch patches-for-ecl-branch. With the stuff currently at the end of
the branch, I find that (require 'asdf) (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-source-op
:maxima) (run) run_testsuite(); runs happily and reports no unexpected
errors. The help system works as expected and plotting works OK
with plot_format either gnuplot or openmath, but not gnuplot_pipes.
So that's all good.

(asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :maxima) compiles all the files without
error and (run) launches Maxima, and some things work, but
run_testsuite reports many errors. In particular, it appears that
factor is completely messed up (returns 0 in many cases) and
the assume stuff is completely messed up; between the two of
them, those bugs are enough to break a lot of stuff. Dunno what
else might be wrong.

If someone can verify the stuff above, that would be very helpful.
If someone can fix the compilation problems, that would be even better.

Please direct followups to the ECL mailing list.
