Latest master and 5.1+your patch builds on Debian/kFreeBSD, _if_ I use
configure --enable-cgcdefault. Otherwise racket3m bus errors the first
time called.  Do you think it is worth having a seperate configure
stanza to make cgc default for GNU/kFreeBSD?

In addition to building the collects, "racket"  and "drracket" seem to
start up fine and run simple calculations.

All the best,
