[Openmcl-devel] New OpenMCL 0.14 binaries available

I ran our application (Specware) in the new OpenMCL 0.14 and it works  
fine except if I turn on egc when it breaks immediately.  This is  
unfortunate as without egc the main test spends >60% of its time  
garbage collecting. Using egc in 0.13 improved this significantly  
(although not as much as we would like). Running the same test under  
allegro or cmucl there is less gc time.

If egc were fixed I think the 0.14 version would be ok.

Thanks for your work,
Stephen Westfold
