libgc + the ecl situation



Hi all!

    The ecl package currently is still affected by [0] -- RC bug caused
by a build failure / embedded copy of libgc. The upload to experimental,
where a new enough libgc is already available did improve definitely. 
As I'm going to adopt libgc (do we want it in pkg-common-lisp btw?) I
could have put that into unstable if the freeze didn't happen.

    The libgc update shouldn't change the API but there are rather some
reverse-depends so I'm not sure the release team is happy to see that
update still. Alternative would probably be to patch the included libgc.

    Haven't had time to look at the libatomic-oops thing still included
(as I read the bug pages) as I had my notebook in an non-working state
and then really fucked up networking.

    Any input is welcome, I'll have real network connectivity and time
starting from wednesday to figure out more details here.

Regards

    Christoph
