[Gcl-devel] 2.6.2

Greetings!  OK, I've just committed the readline patch.  I'm doing the
full test suite now, but barring the unforeseen, I'd like to tag this
as 2.6.2, release, and then move on to head.  Please speak now if
there are problems.  On machines to which I have no access, I'm
assuming that nothing that was working has been broken.  Please
correct me if this is not the case.  We might want to make the
use-fast-links nil switch on Windows automatic i.e. handled by
configure, but apart from this I don't know of anything else that
needs to go into stable.

I'll report back on my test results when done.  Basically
self-compile, ansi-tests, Paul's compiler tests, maxima, acl2, axiom,
nqthm-1992, pc-nqthm-1992, and builds on all 12 Debian arches is my
test suite.  Mac-OSX, BSD, and/or Windows might want to consider the
same.  It will be a few days before all this is completed.  Needless
to say, please don't commit anything non-platform specific to the
stable branch in this period.

(BTW, readline is now initialized automatically.  Completion can be
customized somewhat via the variable si::*readline-prefix*.  See the
info pages for details.  The Debian maxima package will be setting
this var to "maxima::$" for now.)

Take care,
