I don't have any build scripts (except, perhaps, for the ccl
initialization script, .cll-init.lisp, which I have posted at

I annotated my original paste at paste.lisp.org with a complete build
from start to finish. Note that find-system works immediately after
compiling, but fails if I quit and restart ccl. I made only a one-line
change to the ccl directory -- I indicated in scripts/ccl where the
build directory is.

In the annotation, 'v' is aliased to vim in bash.
