I should have done this in the first message you are right.
I got the file pcl+clx.sept92f.clisp.tar.Z from gatekeeper.dec.com.
Clisp seems to be installed correctly (I installed and ran maxima).
I am not at my machine with clisp so I can't copy the message exactly
but here is the code segments that are the problem. Grepping for
any of these (ie: grep big-endian *) in the clisp source comes up empty.

You are using and old version of clisp; I've got a rather new
one and its source sparkles from functions in the system package.
Basically, the system package is for non CL extensions and
optimizations, like MAKE-SOCKET-STREAM or specialized i/o routines
for faster communication with the Xserver.
The best thing would be to get the newest version of clisp;
alternatively you could delete the symbol CLISP from *FEATURES*
so that the conditionals in the CLX source don't fire. CLX works
slower then but works. Use (setq *features* (delete 'CLISP *features*))
to do so. And watch for the endianness of your machine, the i386 is
little-endian (long long way for me to find that out...).
