Juanjo, the main ECL developer has found the bugs in sysfun.lsp causing the problems I noticed earlier on a SPARC box. After copying sysfun.lsp from CVS, bugs affecting both * ellipic_e http://sagetrac.org/sage_trac/ticket/6716 * elliptic_eu http://sagetrac.org/sage_trac/ticket/6719 have been resolved. As such, both of these can be considered closed as far as I am concerned. A new ECL .spkg file can be found here. http://sagetrac.org/sage_trac/ticket/6564 As noted, in the above, it is necessary to update Maxima too, since Maxima has a bug which ECL found. The trac to update Maxima is http://sagetrac.org/sage_trac/ticket/6699 I'm aware the update of Maxima will cause some doctest failures in Sage, but many actually look like improvements in the output from Maxima which are causing the failures. For example, the following doctest fails, but clearly the output is better that what Sage expected. Things like '?%' have been removed in many places.
