Hi all,

I haven't tried GCL for a while (which can be dangerous with Debian sid
because you don't know when something first breaks). I wasn't expecting

$ gclcvs
GCL (GNU Common Lisp)  2.7.0 CLtL1   Jul 24 2004 15:17:38

Use (help) to get some basic information on how to use GCL.

>(loop for x from 1 to 10 sum x)

Error: The variable FOR is unbound.
Fast links are on: do (si::use-fast-links nil) for debugging
Error signalled by LOOP.
Broken at LOOP.  Type :H for Help.
>>(si::use-fast-links nil)

>>(loop for x from 1 to 10 sum x)
Error handler called recursively (:UNBOUND-VARIABLE NIL LOOP ""
                                    "The variable ~S is unbound." FOR)

Error: The variable X is unbound.
Error signalled by LOOP.
Backtrace: system:universal-error-handler > evalhook > loop > 
system:universal-error-handler > SYSTEM::BREAK-LEVEL

Broken at LOOP.

Perhaps there is a build error (ANSI is not enabled? i.e. should the
version header be "2.7.0 CLtL1" for the CVS version?)

Let me know if you'd rather I submit such bug reports via the Debian BTS.
