Hi Michael,

Thanks for the great advice. Yes, its very helpful! Am having a bit of a 
hang up w/ clisp installation, though.

Ive gone through the process of installing Fink - which was easy - as 
you noted. Following that i selected clisp to be installed. Fink doesnt 
seem to have completely installed clisp, however. When i try to run 
clisp i get an error:

dyld: /sw/lib/clisp/base/lisp.run can't open library: 
/sw/lib/libdl.0.dylib  (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

Have looked around on my disk and can't find 'libdl.0.dylib'.

It seems rather suspicious that there would be a file missing. Wondering 
if for some reason there was a screw up as Fink was installing clisp on 
my machine? Or maybe there is a problem w/ the clisp version available?

Any thoughts on this? Should i try having Fink install clisp again? (am 
on a slow modem connection - so it takes a bit of time. . .)


am running macos 10.1.5 - if that makes any difference

oh, and if it does come to it - maybe i will try building clisp from 
sources w/ bash (thanks for the link). though i have no excitement about 
doing so. . .
