Did not say that. With the changes I made and the link to the
sources I posted 2 years ago, it should not take longer than
1/2 a day to incorportate the changes necessary for more 
common lisp compliance into the current sources.

The cmucl port did not include communications to external programs
(which need the foreign function interface for 2 files written in C).
This could easily be rewritten to the cmucl foreign function interface
recoded in cmucl, which offers access to all unix system calls
and sockets in particular. I was not so interested in Hyperdoc
and the graphics and left that part alone.

I ran all the algebra test files (graphics excluded).

I used the standard makefile approach

Because most people do not listen ;-). Last time I posted the url was on Nov 6. 2005
