Greetings!  While I'm not precisely sure of the nature of your
problem, current GCL cvs compiles cuurent maxima CVS (just checked). 

If you are on Debian, the latest (stable branch) GCL cvs is 2.6.1-22.
Just install, export GCL_ANSI=t (maxima requires ansi mode), and do
maxima's ./configure && make.

You can build gcl yourself by

export CVS_RSH=ssh
export CVSROOT=:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/gcl
cvs co -r Version_2_6_1 -d gcl-2.6.1 gcl
cd gcl-2.6.1
./configure --enable-ansi (if you have libgmp3.so, add --enable-dynsysgmp)

Please let me know if problems persist.

We are about to release this as 2.6.2, but hope to squash one
remaining windows only bug first.

Take care,
