 A test building ECL HEAD against boehm-gc 6.8 was done (since boehm-gc
 site claims that 6.8 is the stable recommended version, and to try 7.1
 otherwise).  Unfortunately the same problem persists where ecl_min
 hangs in an endless loop when setting up the environment with any
 ECL version >8.12.0 built with --enable-threads.  This raises doubts
 about the bug being in boehm-gc.
 However, Stalin (the Scheme compiler) also exhibits the same problem
 and it also uses boehm-gc and is linked against libpthread as well.  On
 the other hand, Inkscape and elinks, also using pthread and boehm-gc,
 appear to work fine.
