Hi Tim!

One other issue is coming up.  You are resetting
si::*system-directory* in your restart function.  This is used in gcl
as distributed to find auxiliary files.  On most platforms, you don't
need any, so you don't notice this, but, again as currently
distributed, GCL can't find the cmpinclude.h file when you redirect
this variable.  I've got a work around for now, and this part of GCL
can certainly be made more foolproof, but my question is -- do you
need to set this variable?  Can't we let variables in the 'si package
be set by gcl?

Take care,
