Problems running Maxima under CLISP

I'm looking for help running maxima under CLISP.  I've built it in
accordance with the instructions, but I can't get it to work
consistently.  Some of the commands work (mostly the directly numeric
ones) but others don't work at all --- with DESCRIBE, HELP, and
APROPOS being the most painful absences.

This is probably due to catastrophic user failure, so any help would
be greatly appreciated.

Here's a sample ...
