New CLISP version

There is a new version of CLISP at the usual place:
ma2s2.mathematik.uni-karlsruhe.de:/pub/lisp/clisp/source .

The list of supported platforms now include Amiga 3000/4000 and Atari TT.
The installation procedure on Unix is now simpler.

>From the change log:

User visible changes

* Replaced variable *TEMPFILE* by a function EDITOR-TEMPFILE.


* Unix version: Corrected detection of ANSI C header files.

* Unix version: Check whether signal handlers are automatically reinstalled
  when activated.

* Made readline library ANSI C compliant and (on Unix) auto-configuring.

* In case there is no room for three extra bits in a symbol pointer,
  allocate three stack words per binding in a VAR frame (instead of two stack
  words). This completes the Amiga 3000/4000 version.

* Completed memory model SPVW_PURE_BLOCKS: There is a large contiguous memory
  area for each kind of Lisp object. This model is used only if memory can
  be allocated at prescribed addresses, for example on Unix with mmap().

* More 386BSD support.

Other modifications

* Remove limit on the number of files that may be specified on the command
  line. Limit was 1000.

* Miscellaneous documentation updates.
