Greetings!  This branch contains some quick fixups to the 2.6.9 release:

* - Version_2_6_10pre origin/Version_2_6_10pre 0a9a24cf lintian fix to 
VirtualFree call in unexnt.c
* ---------------------- address@hidden 3003336c rehardwire heap start address 
on windows
* ---------------------- address@hidden 690d58cd try not fixing heap start 
address on windws
* ---------------------- address@hidden 9a54f6a0 try for up to 2 Gb heap on 
* ---------------------- address@hidden 1fb921b5 try to fix deallocation in 
windows heap probe
* ---------------------- address@hidden 3e2d5445 clean windows heap size probe
* ---------------------- address@hidden 59792fe5 don't rely on errno on macosx 
heap size probe
* ---------------------- address@hidden df46f8d3 try to probe heap size on 
* ---------------------- address@hidden 4b8dd9b8 Use brk wrapper around sbrk to 
consolidate behavior when latter is emulated
* ---------------------- address@hidden ca15eecc probe heap size up to 32Gb on 
* --------------------- address@hidden 57dedec1 allocate gcl_zone_body in 
static area, as malloc_create_zone returns a pointer to read-only memory in 
macosx 10.8
* -------------------------------------------- 8d89bd77 work around unlinkable 
profile prototype in macosx 10.8 64bit
* -------------------------------------------- 946fa113 clear prototype

* -------------------------------------------- 2d456775 Set windows heap start

* -------------------------------------------- cbf12e7b place parenthesis

* -------------------------------------------- 01a959cc support for empty 
filenames following -f on command line
* -------------------------------------------- 0eb71c71 fix documentation

* -------------------------------------------- b9c3f3e9 zero firstword in 
set_type_of macro to handle C stack objects
* ------ origin/Version_2_6_9pre Version_2_6_9 b75be097 fix allocate functions

Primarily this fixes the builds on win7 and higher, and macosx 10.7 and
higher.  There is also a fix to an obscure bug revealed by acl2, as well
as a syntax error blocking fricas trunk.  Heap sizes are also dynamic on
windows and macosx, making available much more memory.

I'd like to release this ASAP.  However, I've been informed by the
fricas people that 2.6.9 is much slower for them than 2.6.8.  I haven't
had the time to look into this, and have not experienced this with other
software.  Nevertheless, if someone might isolate any performance
degradation issues in the next few days, I'll try to get a fix in to

Take care,
