Greetings!  A fix to this has been posted to master/Version_2_7_0pre, and will be backported to Version_2_6_15pre.

Greetings, and thanks for your report!  I believe we have zeroed in on a solution for this in a discussion on the mailing list which will be included in next release.

Here a patch which can be applied for both 2.6.14 and 2.6.15pre

(file #55003, file #55004)

I'm a MacPorts developer trying to update our gcl port from 2.6.12 to 2.6.14 but it fails to build for me on macOS 12 on an Intel Mac:

Compiling gcl_sharp.lsp.
;; Loading "./gcl_cmpinit.lsp"
;; Finished loading "./gcl_cmpinit.lsp"
End of Pass 1.
End of Pass 2.
Error: ERROR "Caught fatal error [memory may be damaged]"
Signalled by SYSTEM.
make[1]: *** [gcl_sharp.o] Error 1

I also tried 2.6.13 which fails with:

checking for readline/readline.h... yes
checking for rl_initialize in -lreadline... yes
checking for el_getc in -lreadline... no
checking for rl_completion_matches in -lreadline... yes
configure: error: Unknown rl_completion_entry_function return type

I am using --enable-readline. If I change to --disable-readline then 2.6.13 fails with:

Error: ERROR "Caught fatal error [memory may be damaged]"
