    99It would be great if sage could work with a libecl configured with default options (which means threading  nowadays -- when sage adopted libecl it didn't have threading), especially because it would mean better integration with distributions like Arch. I'm just sharing my earlier experience that this was (at least at some point) not the case. I expect that the test suite won't exercise ecl enough to reliably trigger the behaviours that would crash sage/ecl-with-threading.

     11'''EDIT:''' In fact, the ticket in question deals exactly with the scenario you are facing: running sage in a way that is more integrated in a larger distribution (Mandriva there). It looked like it turned out to be possible at the time to run a generically compiled ECL, but to turn off the threading with a boot-time option (it looks like the option got renamed and that the test is exactly checking that the option is set appropriately).
