I am back. If there are no code-related problems I will plan to
release sbcl-0.8.14 probably this long weekend, or possibly Tuesday if
some local hecticness (teaching the game of Go to Hikaru No Go fans at
Dallas AnimeFest this weekend, on a schedule still under negotiation
with organizers even as I write this...) exceeds planned bounds.
As far as I am aware there aren't any big problems known at the moment
which should delay release. However, the sharpness of my perception
may be colored by some aftereffects of American Airlines delivering me
to Pittsburgh International Airport at 0300 instead of the advertised
1600, so I might have to revise my opinion tomorrow or so after my
reading comprehension recuperates somewhat or after some helpful soul
reminds me of something I overlooked.
Meanwhile, as usual, please treat the system as somewhat frozen,
making conservative "fix" sorts of changes in preference to innovative

This should not delay release: but as of sbcl-0.8.13.10, I believe
that sbcl binaries are no longer copyable between machines with
different libc versions. I think I identified the problem this
morning: dladdr's address is being hardwired into the core, rather
than via a usual indirection a la ldso_stub__dladdr. It might take a
couple of days for a fix to meander in, though.
I believe this also explains my query about non-encapsulated
breakpoints/tracepoints giving segfaults in a debian-built sbcl but
not in locally-built ones: jumping into weeds when looking up a stack
frame isn't going to help.
