Is this 64bits? On my desktop, a not so powerful iMac, ECL seems to perform
better since I told the OS X to use 64 bits for  everything, compilation and
running. I also appreciated the difference between Linux with 32 and 64 bits
-- in the former the garbage collector performs worse because it is
triggered more often, even for the same amount of allocated data. I reckon
this is one reason for the performance loss in some platforms, no clue yet
as to why it happens so.
