        lang/clisp was last changed last November (approx), a binary
        package built then says ...


        readline was updated in Feb, and is now 6.0 (which is >= 5.0
        and so satisfies the pkgsrc dependency).

        However, readline 6.0 provides whereas
        the older clisp binary was linked against the previous
        version of readline (which provided
        which is no longer available to be found.

        Assuming the readline changes aren't API incompatible
        with clisp (I assume there must have been an ABI change
        for the lib major number to have been bumped) then simply
        rebuilding clisp should fix this.   A revbump (as ugly
        as it is for this purpose) would indicate that clisp
        needs to be rebuilt, which should have it link against
        the newer readline.

        Attempt to build math/maxima with binary packages of
        clisp and readline, built at the time of each of their
        most recent updates.

        Expect to see ...

clisp-2.47 successfully installed.

        clisp installed as a dependency, which in turn brings
        in readline.

        Then later, clisp is used ...

*** Error code 1

        Workaround is to remove the clisp binary package and rebuild
        it, which is best caused by a lang/clisp revbump so all the old
        binary packages or clisp that (might have been linked against
        readline 5) get obsoleted and replaced wth new ones.

        Anything else that both is older than readline and uses it
        is likely to need the same treatment.

        The correct fix is to do something about the horrid pkgsrc
        binary dependency system, which is 100% bogus as it is now.
