I used a MacPorts-based installation of SBCL 1.0.23 in order to compile the
latest dev. snapshot of SBCL's source code.
After ~6 minutes on my intel Mac with OS X 10.5.5 and gcc 4.0.1 build 5465,
it ended with the following message:
WARNING! Some of the contrib modules did not build successfully or pass
their self-tests. Failed contribs:"
The last commit of the snapshot I was trying to compile is that of Fri Dec 5
13:47:37 2008 +0000.
Running run-sbcl.sh seems to work fine for basic repl playing.
Is my installation fine? Is there something I should try to make it better?

SBCL itself is probably working fine, but something in your
environment screws up SB-POSIX. Installing the SBCL you have just
built is OK, but if you install it as-is SB-POSIX will *not* be
installed along with it, which is not good as many things (like Slime)
depend on it. Assuming SB-POSIX build, but didn't pass its tests you
can trick install.sh to install it by doing
but it would be better to figure out what went wrong and fix it -- be
the problem in SBCL or with your setup.
If you run
sh make-target-contrib.sh &> log
in the directory after the failed build, and then look for the actual
SB-POSIX failure in the log (either a build or a test failure), what
does it look like? If you can't locate it, you can zip the logfile and
send it to me, and I'll have a look.
