CLISP in NetBSD/Amiga. Anyone?

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

Emacs-19 exists but I've yet to see an Emacs as stable (UNIX included)
as 18.59.

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:

: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.
