Yes, I can confirm that this resolves the problem. Thanks for the
No problem; it's always nice when there *is* a quick fix. ;-}

I never thought about it but now that I've removed ilisp-all.elc I
have to say that I also don't notice a difference.
Since you and Bill Clementson agree, and I hear no dissenting voices, I
have taken all mention of the "loadfile" target out of the documentation
(which amounted to two versions of the same short paragraph), flushed
the "load" from ilisp.el, and fixed the Makefile so that "make loadfile"
generates a "no longer supported" message.
I also took out the 'CONTRIBUTORS' section from ilisp.el, adding a
few overlooked names to the ACKNOWLEDGMENTS file, and the 'KNOWN BUGS'
section, since these seemed to be only of historical interest. The
deleted text is reproduced below for reference. If anybody thinks these
should be kept, then you are welcome to add it back, though I would
argue that ilisp.el is not the best place for them.
