Re: [Maxima-discuss] Compiling pregexp.lisp fails with GCL?

OK, great, I was able to successfully build pre120 on a gcc-4 system,
Maxima build is in progress, and it has gotten past the point where
pregexp.lisp is compiled, so I guess that's okay now.

The new executable identifies itself as "GCL (GNU Common Lisp)  2.6.12
ANSI    Fri Apr 22 15:51:11 UTC 2016". I would like to recommend
pretty strongly to equip GCL with a more precise version string.
Wouldn't it be a lot better to say "2.6.13pre120" as the version
identifier? If any date is given, it seems like it should be either
the timestamp of the tagged commit, or the time at which the
executable was built, dunno what makes more sense.

I'll keep you posted about the Maxima build.
