thanks for the update! I just pushed an update of maxima (and wxmaxima), but
without your addition of ecl. Is there a good reason for this? In any case,
this should be done in a separate commit, since it is not required for the
update. For the record, I also tried to compile with gcl, but this still

Ah, interesting. Which one should we do? I personally tend to prefer tarballs
(as the official distribution mechanism of the project). Recently there has

are involved, as they make it possible to recreate the configure scripts
from their source. But since this is not the case here, the argument does
not hold.
