I was able to compile under lion thanks to your notes at:

This is the script that I used based off your notes.


mkdir -p install_ecl
mkdir -p install_gc


cd src/gc-unstable
./configure --prefix=$GC_INSTALLDIR
make && make install

./configure --prefix=`pwd`/install_ecl --enable-boehm=system\

make && make install

Thanks a lot for the fix! I'm a huge fan of this project. :)
