Sorry, that was a mistake. Clock created the package at the moment when
CVS contained forgotten debugging messages in javascript (for about 5

Quick patch:

vi ipret.c and find:
#define debug(a) \
#undef debug
/* #define debug(a) */

It's about two screens below the start of the file. It's one of last
#defines at the beginning.

Remove the comment around the #define debug(a)

It should look like this (after remove):

#define debug(a) \
#undef debug
#define debug(a)
