New comment by knusbaum on void-packages repository

I don't recall how xbps handles packages that require specific versions of another package.
As long as maxima-ecl gets rebuilt whenever ecl gets updated, it should be fine to include in `/usr/lib/ecl-21.2.1/`. I spent a little time in the ECL manual and on web search looking for a formal description of ecl's `require` implementation, but didn't find much. 

I *did* find that ecl fasls are basically shared objects, so they may need to be recompiled when ecl is updated anyway. I'm not sure and can't find any good info.

It's a shame, based on the [sagemath changes]( it looks like maxima needs to be `require`able rather than using any other package solution (`asdf` or somesuch)
