It's the first thing in the readme now. Is that enough or should there be more? (ie outreach to major GNU/linux distributions to get them to enable it by default?)

When I had first tried out gcl last summer, I had written it off after some time because it did not seem to support defclass/CLOS at all. With the latest release (2.6.6), I scanned through the release notes if something had changed in this respect, but couldn't find anything. It was only after digging through the gcl-devel list archives that I found a mail from December 2004 pointing out the --enable-ansi configure switch. I suggest you make this easier to discover, otherwise it just looks to the uninformed observer as if gcl simply isn't usable for projects using CLOS.
