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.
