CLISP in NetBSD/Amiga. Anyone?

Hey, I can count on my fingers the number of times the Amiga-CLISPs I
released crashed on me.

Sorry, I can't really help you with non native Amiga ports. You'll
need a rock-solid GCC to compile CLISP, I'm still using 2.5.8. You
mustn't have AMIGAOS defined and maybe even not define AMIGA, but
`configure' should take care of this.
Try to be more specific about your "lots of problems", maybe somebody
will recognize a pattern.
Here's from very old mails to the list:

:Subject: problem building clisp for AMIGA NetBSD 1.0

:lisp.run dumps core when loading "defmacro.lsp"
:- I've tried older versions of clisp: same result
: these versions work fine with AMIX 2.1 and
: NetBSD 0.9 (!)
:- I've used gcc 2.4.5 and 2.6.0: same result

:I have CLISP running under NetBSD/Amiga. mmap() and friends and the
:shm support don't seem to be adequate for CLISP. I can only get working
:images when CLISP is built with the -DNO_MULTIMAP_FILE and -DNO_MULTIMAP_SHM
:options set (same as for 386BSD from the porting notes).
:NetBSD is still evolving so maybe someday.
I can forward you the `unixconf.h' file that Bob Slawson sent to me back
CLISP internas w.r.t. UNIX have changed a lot since 1994.
