I was just pointing out that there was no need to specify -q, and that
omitting -no-site-file left open the possibility that some local
configuration was triggering the error.  Not to blame such a
configuration, but just to see whether the C crash could be traced back
to a particular piece of Lisp.

The CSW (Community SoftWare) site at http://www.blastwave.org/ provides
21.3 binaries for Solaris 8 through 11 on both SPARC and x86, all built
on Solaris 8, from the stable respository.  It also provides 21.4
binaries for those platforms from the unstable repository, also built on
version 8.  See first the pkg-get site at
