I must warn you, that the version is more than 2 years old. Most
changes fix the usage or the better not-usage of #'. There are
2 changes to the algebra files with respect of char and integer
mixture. And directories have no file type in CMU CL - this
change to daase.lisp is not a fix but a hack and does not
work under GCL. The other changes should work with GCL as

CMU CL has an interface to external C code, but I never
tried it. Rewriting the 2 C files in Lisp should not
be difficult either. Not being too interested in the
graphics and hyperdoc, I did not port these parts
to CMU CL at that time (2 or 3 years ago).
