OK.  If you look now at

you'll see the package is called fricas-0.3.1.spkg so users
install it by doing

   sage -i fricas-0.3.1

The main plus of this packaging for sage is that it builds from
source quickly (in a few minutes) using precompiled clisp files.

Let me know if any other issues arise with Sage.
