[This is unrelated to the CLISP problem.]

SLIME uses fcntl(2) to enable SIGIO for the socket.  The binding for
fcntl is only available in newer SBCL versions ( and above).

I patched SLIME to use our own version of fcntl if the function
doesn't exist it the sb-posix package.  The CVS version of SLIME
should now work with not so new SBCL versions, at least on Linux.
