The only "resolution" I have - replace Maxima defsystem

I'd like to know who is the real troublemaker.
Maybe we hit some subtle GCL+mingw bug.

This is patch to current CVS Maxima defsystem.lisp
which resolves trouble with Mingw GCL.

Basically it restores one line conditional

#+:gcl(abs-name (file-namestring abs-dir))
#-:gcl(abs-name (ignore-errors (file-namestring abs-dir)))

This conditional can be found in older defsystem and
later was replaced by mere

(abs-name (ignore-errors (file-namestring abs-dir)))

So it seems that there is some bug in ignore-errors
in Mingw GCL.

Sorry to interrupt, but I am now confused. Do you have the cltl1 gcl
working, or the ansi gcl working. I experimented with the cltl1 gcl on
windows. With some modifications to defsystem.lisp I was able to get
Maxima to build, but it crashed while running the tests.

If the three of you (Vadim, Camm and Mike) are succeeding in producing a
windows gcl that will work with Maxima, I jump in and complicate

I'm really holding out for a working windows binary.


GCL CVS ANSI + Maxima CVS with above modification
to defsystem.lisp builds and passes all tests.
