Thank you for your interest in this, as I have always wanted to get
LISA working on GCL.  Am pleased to report that all of the above save
the define-symbol-macro are implemented in the cvs head version,
ansi-build.  I believe the Windows port of this is still in progress,
so I am wondering if you have access to a Linux machine.  If so, I
will be happy to help you build cvs head, and then perhaps you could
let us know what obstacles remain for LISA.  We have an analogous
ongoing discussion with the author of femlisp, who has converted the
define-symbol-macro statements therein to equivalent symbol-macro-let
statements -- perhaps something similar can be done for LISA in the
