Very good news!

I made a stab at integrating ECL into the automake machinery. The
automake part was trivial, but I failed because I do not understand what
is required to get ECL to take the asdf description of maxima and turn
it into an executable. Admittedly, I only spent twenty-or-so minutes
with the ECL documentation. Can any ECL people lend a hand? I need to
know exactly which commands to send to ecl in order to generate an
executable with the maxima system that starts with the function cl-user:run.
