The odd thing is that clx require X server to be up in order to load.
When I try to load it when X is not up I get the following error "NIL
is not of type STREAM"
Seems like clx tries to communicate with X at load / compile time.
Maybe ecl port is missing some eval-when, or this is general problem with clx.
Or this is just me an my quite unusual combination of OS and X ;)
