For folks wanting to compile SBCL/Win32 on Windows, I've put up some
recent binaries from CVS head plus the latest patches for stdcall
aliens and I/O:
There are a few gotchas still with the build process:
- If you are checking out the SBCL source using a Windows CVS that
does CRLF translation (anything except Cygwin CVS IIRC), you need to
do a checkout with -kb to preserve the UNIX endings. If you get
errors about non-STANDARD-CHARs in string literals, this is why.
- If you are going to be hacking on the source, you will probably want
to comment out the part of canonicalize-whitespace-1 that calls
'expand', because this utility is something different on Windows,
and will overwrite your freshly modified files if they contain tabs!
- The contribs don't all build yet.
