clisp version 2000-03-06 should build on MacOS X Server. There are a few
quirks mentioned in the unix/PLATFORMS file, however:
! On Apple PowerPC running MacOS X Server:
! The /bin/sh shell has at least two bugs which make it unusable for the
! configuration scripts. As a workaround, you have to set the environment
! variable CONFIG_SHELL to "/bin/bash", and start
! "$CONFIG_SHELL ./configure ..." instead of "./configure ...".
! The default stack size limit is 512 KB, which is too small for bootstrapping
! CLISP. Even 1 MB is too small. Try "ulimit -S -s 8192" before starting
! Remove all optimization options ("-O", "-O2") from the CC and CFLAGS
! variables in the Makefile. Apple's cc crashes when compiling eval.d with
For this latter reason, binary packages are not on our ftp server: I wait
until they provide a reasonable C compiler.
