If there are real problems with the gcl 2.6.2 ansi build on windows and
the only thing that is keeping traditional gcl 2.6.2 on windows from
working with Maxima is defsystem.lisp, then we can *certainly* fix
defsystem.lisp. It is my stated desire to move Maxima to the ansi gcl
build as soon as possible. That does not mean I want to create an
artificial stumbling block over what looks like a very small problem.

The only changes in defsystem.lisp are various portability conditionals.
If the May 2003 version works (I think Vadim means revision 1.9. If not,
he should say so), then the changes required to get the current
defsystem.lisp to work should be trivial.
