ECL does have weak pointers and that could be used to implement weak hash tables, but it has not been done.
And regarding what I said, note the difference between libraries that work on other implementations and libraries that do not support ECL because they demand nonstandard implementations -- the later case should be regarded not as a bug, but as a feature request (interface available in Sourceforge as well).
However, in many cases those dependencies can be worked around by library developers. In particular I doubt that trivial-garbage needs weak hash tables at all given that ECL has finalization.

If ECL have support for it, it shouldn't be too hard to port
trivial-garbage to use it.
