Description :
GCL is a Common Lisp currently compliant with the ANSI standard.  Lisp
compilation produces native code through the intermediary of the
system's C compiler, from which GCL derives efficient performance and
facile portability. Currently uses TCL/Tk as GUI.

and also fixes installation of the governing SELinux policy for gcl.
