I was using maxima and got an error like this (then I referred to gcl 


Maxima encountered a Lisp error:

Error in PROGN [or a callee]: The storage for CONS is exhausted.
Currently, 43968 pages are allocated.
Use ALLOCATE to expand the space.

]//end of error

The maxima texinfo manual says to refer to the gcl documentation regarding 
ALLOCATE or GBC.  However, when I look up ALLOCATE in the gcl texinfo 
manual, it doesn't really give the usage details (for allowable "types"), 
and furthermore when I type (ALLOCATE CONS 50000) in gcl, I get an error 
saying "the variable CONS is unbound".  I'm using gcl 2.6.7-62, and 
gcl-doc (same version) in Debian stable, and the maxima version I'm using 
is 5.21.1-2squeeze (in Debian stable).

Thanks and regards,
