Cool! Just wondering -- do you know off the top of your head if it also would
work to use gcl out of the box, provided one edits ACL2's init.lsp file to do
(fmakunbound 'si::sgc-on) as the first step before building ACL2?

Greetings! OK, I've confirmed. This is the same strange sgc/macosx
issue which arose right after 2.6.5 was released. I believe Aurelien
has already written on this. I've forgotten the details, but will dig
them up. I now have access to a macosx box and have confirmed this
there, so perhaps I can help debug.
In the meantime, there is a workaround. Before building acl2, do
mv foo <path to your gcl unixport directory>/saved_gcl
I will test this too and (hopefully) confirm that it resolves all
