ecl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libecl.so.12.2: undefined symbol: GC_push_other_roots

I updated my system to rawhide to continue my work on porting sagemath
to fedora, so, now I guess I am in a wild land, but still :-) as the
target for sagemath should be fedora 18.

Initial discussion with upstream about it:
Comment 1 Paulo Andrade 2012-05-20 14:39:17 EDT
I sent a message describing the problem to gc at linux.hpl.hp.com
asking for a suggestion to upstream ecl upstream.
Comment 2 Paulo Andrade 2012-05-20 15:22:03 EDT
BTW, just a few days after updating from fedora 16 to rawhide, now
what I see is:

$ ecl

Internal or unrecoverable error in:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

that should be a side effect of some yum upgrade/update, what actually
would be a lot harder to figure out the cause (missing symbols).
