Thanks for your help! It's been a learning experience -- I didn't
know what "patch" was before this, or what I should be patching. But
the build succeeded, and both "make test" and "make testsuite" passed.
Before I "make install" I just started wondering whether I should
have used the other patches as well. I got clisp-2.26.tar.gz from
the WWW sources directory, and I only applied the "no-ffi" patch --
and that only because the build failed.
Are the other patches needed? And if I apply them, do I again
patch src/makemake.in, or some other file?
Incidentally, I ignored the unix/PLATFORMS advice that said to
remove optimization from the compile flags (-O, -O2) for Mac OS X.
I used the stock tcsh, and increased the stacksize to 8192 via
the commands unlimit and limit (inspired by the PLATFORMS advice,
but slightly different).
