Thanks. I found a simpler solution. The maxima script calls ccl-based 
maxima in the following way:

ccl -I /path/to/maxima.image -e '(cl-user::run)'

I changed it to

ccl -I /path/to/maxima.image -e "(let\* ((\*read-default-float-format\* 'double-float)) (cl-user::run))"

After that, the testsuite succeeds. So, I have committed clozurecl-1.5 and 
maxima-5.21.1 (with this patch) to Gentoo.
