;;; as a portable way of retrieving this information; a call to this
;;; could be made in grovel-headers (which, strictly speaking, would
;;; no longer solely be grovelling headers), though the question of
;;; how to make this information appear in GENESIS, which is built and
;;; run from host-1 files (which are made before grovel-headers runs)

;;; comment from CMU CL:
;;; in case we ever wanted to do this for Windows NT..
;;; Windows NT uses a memory system granularity of 64K, which means
;;; everything that gets mapped must be a multiple of that. The real
;;; page size is 512, but that doesn't do us a whole lot of good.
;;; Effectively, the page size is 64K.
