Description (last modified by Dima Pasechnik)

this would fix some bugs, e.g. as reported here.

  • get Maxima here (then git checkout 5.36.0.1); the tarball; note that sf.net with tarballs is down...
  • ECL git here and apparently the tarball can be obtained there, too. But it is not useful without renaming, etc.

ecl tarball to use is here

For info, I have been using ecl 15.3.7 for a while in sage-on-gentoo. That part is a straight upgrade as far as I can see. I do not remember having tried a newer maxima but it usually breaks a lest a couple of doctest.

I tried maxima 5.36.0 and reverted (that was with ecl 15.3.7) , not tried 5.36.1 (5.36.0.1 whatever the version number is actually).

The branch is currently not working; to build the new ecl pkg, one has to move patches/implib.patch out of the way; I tried porting the latter patch to the new ecl, but it produces a makefile error that I don't understand; anyway, it is cygwin-specific.

I cc its author now. J.-P., any ideas?
