What box?  I'm almost sure that this must be an external dynamic
library mismatch.  I take it that this is not a Debian box.  (If it
were, the dependency information in the package should prevent this
type of problem).  On Debian, the gcl package is known to correctly
build both maxima and acl2 on ia64.  Try 'ldd unixport/saved_gcl'.  BTW,
the Debian package ships the traditional, not the ansi, image at
present, so you will have to recompile if you want the latter.   In a
few weeks time, the package should ship both images, as we are nearing
an official release of 2.5.0.

This is a well known (gcc) compiler bug on this platform, which is
worked-around in debian/rules.  Try 'debian/rules build' to build a
clean source tree.

Please let me know how it goes.

Take care,
