maxima would minimally need to be rebuilt (binNMU ?). I am currently
tracking down some strange interaction with randomized sbrk and
pbuilder on my box (that are the same for both 5.15.0-2 and
5.13.0-3.1, and don't seem to be a problem on the buildds), but if I
disable randomized sbrk, then 5.13.0-3.1 seems to build and pass its
self tests with gcl-2.6.7-42.  If this build problem really is just
me, then rebuilding the version currently in testing with a current
gcl could be an option.

I suggest followups to debian-devel until we have something concrete
to propose to the release team.
