just for my understanding: To add a module in contrib/ one needs to:

1. put the directory into contrib/
2. add an appropriate AC_ARG_WITH(foo, ...) line to src/configure.in
3. add a line that checks for foo and pushes foo onto ECL_MODULES to
4. add build magic to src/compile.lsp.in

5. recompile and be happy

Is is complete? I plan to add support for asdf-install, too. With those
two packages one could quite easily download all other packages one
might need.
