No problem!

Great!  Will check it out.

We've been accepted into Debian testing, and will be available in the
next release in Debian and/or derivatives like knoppix/ubuntu, etc.

Should be able to apt-get the binary now or soon.  I can also send you
one if interested.  Uses gcl-2.6.8pre, soon to be released as stable,

export CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/gcl
cvs -z9 -q co -d gcl-2.6.8pre -r Version_2_6_8pre gcl

BTW, I'd mentioned this to the axiom people, who had expressed
interest in an ml in the same image axiom runs upon.  Do you have any
other notions as to where/if this build might be useful?

BTW, should also build with cvs head, which has more advanced
features, but is still experimental.  I believe Bob Boyer uses this
regularly, though.

Take care,
