Hi Juan,

After trying to build ecl on a windows machine after a long time I
noticed several minor problems.
I used unicode, threads, system gmp and system boehm (7.2alpha4) in
configure step.
The build went fine with the few exceptions:
- Profile package was not built. After manually compiling it and
copying to install folder I was able to require it and it seemed to
work from little testing I did.
- libgc-1.dll is not copyed in install folder during installation. I
think it should be copied because msys/local/lib folder is not part of
PATH under windows, so trying to run ecl.exe fails complaining it
can't find it. Copying it manually to install folder fixes it.
- There are some problems with slime, but I didn't have time te investigate.
- newcmp build doesn't work, but I suppose you are aware of it, since
it doesn't work in linux either.

As a side note, would it be possible to add slime/swank tests to ecl
automatic test suide? Something like loading swank, connnecting to it,
executing some simple command  and disconnecting.

Thanks for the good work.
