I'm going to sound like a prat here, mostly because I don't know
what I'm talking about. :-)
In ports/lang/gcl, a program is "undumped", and the resultant binary
dumps core _very_ early in the startup. I can't get debugging info,
because the undumping also seems to strip the program.
Could you please try that port, and see what you can glean? I'm
frobbing around in xemacs, which works, to see if I can't fix
