The real problem here is that the gcl-specific fixes to defsystem that I
put in to Maxima's defsystem have not been submitted back to the
defsystem maintainers. It's my fault -- I always meant to submit the
changes, but never did. Determining which modifications need to be made
to the *current* defsystem and then submitting them to the defsystem
maintainers should solve the problem once and for all.
