The "sym" package uses a hardcoded path "/usr/local/maxima/sym/". It may cause problems.

NOTE: To compile the system do
load("sym/compile");
argument value `/usr/local/maxima/sym/' to append was not a list
-- an error. To debug this try debugmode(true);
(%i6) load("sym/compile");
;
; compilation unit aborted
; caught 1 fatal ERROR condition

Load failed for /usr/local/share/maxima/5.16post/share/sym/compile.lisp
-- an error. To debug this try debugmode(true);

I think it's not hard to fix it.

    Committed changes to sym package to use special variable *MAXIMA-OBJDIR* to determine location for compiler output. Closing this report as fixed.
