I can't seem to build threaded sbcl 0.8.21 for x86_64. It errors out
while compiling gencgc.c.
(pushnew :sb-thread l)
(pushnew :sb-futex l)
During make.sh, I (eventually) get , which indicates that cc is
expecting reg_ESP to be defined. I google'd and grep'd a bit and found
that it's is found in src/runtime/x86-lispregs.h (but not
src/runtime/x86-64-lispregs.h), and that REG_ESP is defined in
/usr/include/sys/ucontext.h, but only if the wordsize is 32 bits
(which it isn't) and __USE_GNU is #define'd (which I tried, but of
course didn't help).
Just for fun, I #define'd reg_ESP 8 in gencgc.c . Then gencgc.c
compiled successfully, but I got a really ugly backtrace  in
subsequent portions of the build.
cc -g -Wall -O3 -fno-omit-frame-pointer -I. -c -o gencgc.o gencgc.c

Threaded sbcl is unsupported and unimplemented for x86_64, though
there's a CVS branch which reportedly mostly works.
