I am happy to announce the availability of the CL-CONFIGURATION
package: an 'autoconf' for Common Lisp.

logical pathnames in an easier way. It can also be used to
automatically load different "systems" defined with different "DEFSYS"
utilities (and if it cannot yet, support for other "DEFSYS" can be
Please download it and play with it. If you don't like the design and
