Thank you for the patch, and for the clear explanation of what it does.
I'd like to get to it reasonably soon, but I've been spending too much
time on application programming recently, and not enough time on
system programming, so the head of my to-do list looks like this,
finished fix for bug #17, loosely based on MNA's patch
There's no #'(SETF DOCUMENTATION)? Fix that.
?? BACKEND-BYTE-FASL-FILE-TYPE should go away.
MNA condition system patch
from RW's mail 1 Dec 2000:
I also suggested that "-Xlinker -export-dynamic"
might work under OpenBSD instead of simply
"-export-dynamic" - has anybody looked at this?
MNA logical pathname patch
so it probably won't get done for a few days at least.

Oops, I should probably have anticipated that specific problem and
tested for it. I should also probably test more often with CMU CL in
general. I'll see whether I can think of a workaround in the next few
days. Otherwise I may give up, submit it as a bug to the CMU CL
people, and rewrite INSTALL to say that CMU CL isn't supported as a
cross-compilation host until that bug is fixed.
