Hi Juanjo,

Thanks for the advice. This is just about expected for configure style builds
I guess. It's just not very Lispy, that's all.

Perhaps those are more Lispy if expressed as defconstants?


etc... But sure, they are after all internal variables, so never mind.

I will look into rebuilding ECL one day. Not too keen on all that
dependency chasing (but clisp is worse, so that, along with various
other reasons, was why I finally decided to give ECL a try).

Cheers all! :)
