compiled it, and built Maxima with it, however nothing changed:
writefile still just creates the empty file, and otherwise nothing
Please understand that my email was not an answer of whatever writefile problem there is, but rather to the first email stating the problem with dribble. All I got is that email in a conversation that apparently was already going on but where all I could see is a discussion about dribble.
If the problem is stated better, then I might feel motivated to have a look at it, but cross-posting to a different list in the middle of a conversation leads to insatisfactory answers for everybody, typically.
BTW, I am _not_ subscribed to the maxima mailing list.
