Why not just use fricas? It's in the main tree, and can be compiled by
sbcl, cmucl, clozurecl, clisp, ecl (and probably gcl).

Me too. Debian ships usable gcl for lots of architectures. I think we can
just return to the old practice: take the 2.6.7 tarball + the (huge!)
debian patch number <n>, and ship the result as 2.6.8_pre<n>.
