Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Calling slime from Emacs 24 is given a compilation error due to innapropriate
library path include when calling gcc to generate backend.fas from
backend.lisp. The calling function where:

(RUN-PROGRAM "gcc" '("-o" ".cache/common-lisp/ecl-13.5.1-unknown-
x86_64/backend.fas" "/home/jrm/.cache/common-lisp/ecl-13.5.1-unknown-
x86_64/backend.o" "-Wl,--rpath,/usr/lib/" "-shared" "-lecl" "-lgmp" "-lgc"
"-lffi" "-lpthread" "-ldl" "-lm"))

The line above has "-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu" missing. So, the correct
compile command would be:

(RUN-PROGRAM "gcc" '("-o" ".cache/common-lisp/ecl-13.5.1-unknown-
x86_64/backend.fas" "-L/usr/lib/" "-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu"
lisp/source/slime/swank/swank/fasl/ecl-13.5.1-linux-x86_64/backend.o" "-Wl,--
rpath,/usr/lib/" "-shared" "-lecl" "-lgmp" "-lgc" "-lffi" "-lpthread" "-ldl"

Running the command by hand, backend.fas is generated and slime works well in
