Just wanted to point out here that the Debian/Ubuntu gcl package
actually ships 4 images:

Cltl1 with gprof support
ANSI with gprof support

When the package is installed (gcl ... .deb), these images are toggled
with the environment variables


When set, gcl should report what image is running in the startup banner.

If you build your own gcl, you are naturally getting just one image, so
the GCL_ANSI environment variable does nothing.

maxima requires ansi, up until now acl2 required cltl1 (now can use
either).  If I recall axiom can run on either as well.

I suppose I should look at this at some point.  I never really
understood it.  I always wondered why it had to be so complex, and what
was wrong with make.

Take care,
