Ok:) no worries,

actually i have now built ecl, so i have a lisp interpreter.

Building clisp is now academic, but i've got the bug!:)

Doing these things often gets me more into NetBSD than the
original intention, which was to just run a little bit of lisp.

I am curious if the compiler is actually buggy on sparc,
or if my hardware is a bit old and flakey, and is to blame.

Like what causes this:
Int f(Int,Int,Int):({1},{2},{3})->{6}
Int f(Int,Int,Int):({1},{2},{3})->{-268441316}

the second line is looking like a bit got flipped.
or maybe several.

In years gone by i have also had trouble building Lisp
and Valery has helped me out. But I think it was something
as simple as ulimits back then.
