Not looking for anything exotic; just want to be able to run cmucl and
ccl for now to run some automated tests for maxima
( This currently works with
sbcl, but more would be better. Ideally, ecl and gcl should also be run.

I mentioned to Erik that I think cmucl needs the 32-bit C libraries to
run; ccl64 produces this error message:

/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found
(required by ./ccl/lx86cl64)

ccl32 won't even run, perhaps because of missing libraries. But ldd
didn't say anything about missing libraries.
