Oddities in ECL tests on Linux

I'm experimenting with your changes now but, for some reason that I 
don't understand, when I run the tests as `make l=ecl` interactively on 
Ubuntu (using the Ubuntu ECL package `16.1.2-3`), signals are throwing 
me into the interactive debugger, instead of being caught.  I have no 
idea why this started happening, because I used to be able to run ECL 
successfully, and I don't believe I have changed the package (although 
Ubuntu might have upgraded it).

Actually /usr/bin/ecl is crashing with SIGABRT when running programs, 
apparently, on my Ubuntu box.  (`SIGABRT in si_run_program()`).  I'll 
try uninstalling and reinstalling ECL in the hopes that fixes this, but 
unless I get some help, I will not be able to continue testing ASDF on 
ECL on Linux.
