Sorry to interrupt, but I am now confused. Do you have the cltl1 gcl
working, or the ansi gcl working. I experimented with the cltl1 gcl on
windows. With some modifications to defsystem.lisp I was able to get
Maxima to build, but it crashed while running the tests.

If the three of you (Vadim, Camm and Mike) are succeeding in producing a
windows gcl that will work with Maxima, I jump in and complicate

I'm really holding out for a working windows binary.
