As it seems (#21963) linking problems cannot be resolved without a standard 
Giac package I'd like to restart the argument here.
I successully cloned the giac core from the geogebra repo given here and 
today fetched current changes, all via "git svn".
That anwers the question of availability of an actively maintained and 
public giac repo. Git config:

[svn-remote "svn"]
        url = https://dev.geogebra.org/svn/trunk/geogebra/giac/src/giac
        fetch = :refs/remotes/git-svn

However, the code in that giac subdirectory is bare bones, i.e., without 
any autotools. The other question is, is this code sufficient to support 
both sage/interfaces/giac.py and sage/libs/giac.py and if not,what would be 
needed? Would it be easy to add the parser to it in C++ (the one in 
geogebra is in java)? If not I might be tempted to create a third giac 
package (libgiac) just for linking with Pynac, and the other giac package 
can stay optional for eternity.
