Hello Mathew:

I've attached a slightly different copy of the CLX test code that I 
tried using SBCL 1.0.48 in slime and it compiles and runs without incident.

The difference is that the CLX I use with sbcl was downloaded using 
clbuild and lives in a different folder on my system. I've done some 
cursory checks to see if it's the same CLX, and it appears to be, but my 
checks for similarity were not exhaustive.

Thanks for looking into this problem. I'd like to have CLX work with ECL 
because I think it would offer some interesting ways to build portable 
graphics applications.
