Re: [Gcl-devel] gcl 2.7.0 hopelessly broken in debian

To reproduce the problem, install the latest cl-asdf 1.704 from debian
and common-lisp-controller 7.2 with gclcvs 2.7.0-64 and try this:

GCL_ANSI=t gclcvs -eval '(asdf:load-system :fare-utils)'

Use any system here - I'm using fare-utils from git because I know it
and it has no dependencies. Try alexandria or whatever.

Without debian, try downloading the latest asdf from git (currently
1.710) and try this:
(require :asdf) ; or (load "/path/to/asdf.lisp")
(asdf:load-system :fare-utils)

PS: it would be nice if gcl were packaged by clbuild.

The error I get is
Unrecoverable error: bind stack overflow.

(Note: linux amd64)

Haven't tried 32 bit in a while - would have to resurrect a 32-bit
machine / installation.

Death is only a state of mind.

Only it doesn't leave you much time to think about anything else.
