I compiled maxima 5.25.1 on Puppy Linux 5.3 RC using gcl. (gcl 2.6.8pre from cvs, this was build with gcc 4.5.2)
make check passd with no errors, but after make install I get "Segmentation fault" when running maxima.
maxima-local from build dir before installation starts up without problems.
I guessed it has something to do with the stripping of the binaries during make install.
so I ripped some lines out of the Makefile.in, from install-strip.
It now looks like this (line 589 ff.)
$(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) INSTALL_PROGRAM="$(INSTALL_STRIP_PROGRAM)" \ echo "INSTALL_PROGRAM_ENV=STRIPPROG='$(STRIP)'"` install
now it seems to work
