I set LC_ALL to ISO-8859-1 -- this normally solves the problem
(however, it seems that some clisp versions ignore this setting).
Personally, I belive that clisp insistence on single file
encoding is really a bug (there should be a way to say within
a program that we want to read a file using 8-bit encoding).
