[CM] midi ports/clm/cm3 in s7 scheme

the latest tarball has the midi ports/thread working in s7. i ran a  
few processes, including the double process reich example  in real  
time and s7 seems to keep up fine.

since there is no gui ive added some stuff to cm3 to manage ports, and  
ill extend it to files in the next tarball so cm3 will seem much more  
like cm2. at that point i dont think there is any reason to use the  
cm2 branch unless common lisp itself if important. here are the two  
main additions to cm3:

(ports)                                     returns info about ports  
and devices (only the midi port right now)
(open "name.port" ...)          opens port

i dont have the send macro yet, but you can use all the underlying  
functions. here is an example,  see  cm3/scm/example.scm for more info
