If you can get GCL to build it would be a big help.
It would be an even bigger help if you could get Axiom to build
as Axiom has "portable (guffaw) C code".

I'm using Fink. That isn't the problem. The problem is the same one
I'm having with the FreeBSD port. The C include files have a completely
different tree than the Linux files.
