I should have added, the option


was already added to ECL - without it, ECL would not build. However, although 
the option allowed ECL to build, Maxima failed to build very quickly. The error 
message generated by Maxima looks quite similar to that which ECL generates if 
that option is not given.





may be useful.

Any ideas?
