Hello list,

just a short note to inform you that i ran into problems
installing CM (CVS) under opnmcl on my GNU/Linux/Debian 

It seems that some of the OS/architecture detection in
file 'src/make.lisp' doesn't work. Here are my changes:

NOTE: i don't have the slightest idea about the 'linux vs. 'linux-taget
thing (i just started to evaluate openmcl/Linux) -- i just had
a look at the *features* list.

Second: there's function 'syscmd' that uses a hardcoded program
path (/bin/test) which doesn't exist on any of my Debian boxes (the
program sits in /usr/bin).

Hope that helps
