Once again, openmcl (aka ccl and Clozure CL) builds a command line
Maxima using Windows XP that passes all tests. Mostly due to sloth, I
haven't done a full build using openmcl under Windows. (I have Perl
5.6 and 5.10, but seem to need 5.8, or something like that. I'd guess
I have other missing components too.) To build using Clozure, I need
to replace Maxima's defsystem with the one provided by Clozure.
Overall, Clozure runs Maxima under windows reasonably fast and the
Windows version of Clozure is kept up to date. Finally, this past May,
the Clozure developers were quick to fix bugs that prevented the
testsuite from finishing.
