I've downloaded the Algol68 compiler package 'algol68toc_1.15.tar.gz'[*] and
compiled[**] and installed it on a Xubuntu Linux 2.6.32. When I ran it I got:

Run time fault (aborting):
Garbage collector:HEAP allocation of object whose size is not a word multiple

Has anyone compiled and used this package and can give me some hints how to
make that beast run?

[**] I've seen no configure file, so I compiled it as it came with 'make'.
