Last I heard, CLX compiles on GCL out of the box.  Would appreciate

Is he using our ANSI build?  I'd appreciate a report here too.  We
have an ansi test suite courtesy of Paul Dietz, which gives the loop
macro a heavy workout.  Last I checked we were as good as cmucl in
this regard.  In the Debian packaged gcl, the test suite results can
be found in /usr/share/doc/{gcl,gclcvs}/test_results.gz.  If one wants
ANSI, our gclcvs branch has made some significant improvements over
the stable branch.  Just to let you know, though, axiom cannot use the
ansi build until the in-package issue is resolved, at least without
being patched, i.e. externally.  Our traditional non-ansi image is
used to build axiom for Debian, as it has the old in-package

Is this gcl-gtk?  We've imported that tree into cvs head, but haven't
worked with it much yet.
