I can't seem to compile PCL in this version of KCL; I noticed that
KCL isn't listed in the list of Lisps for which PCL has been tested or
in the list for which PCL has not been tested yet, but it is mentioned
later on in notes.text...

here is what happend when I tried compiling it.

These files compiled successfully:

	boot.o          defs.o          kcl-low.o       pkg.o           precom4.o
	braid1.o        fin.o           kcl-patches.o   points.o        slots.o
	combin.o        fsc.o           low.o           precom1.o       std-class.o
	dcode.o         init.o          macros.o        precom2.o       vector.o
	defclass.o      iterate.o       methods.o       precom3.o       walk.o

but then I got this error:

KCL is supported at purdue, but there could be a bug still in it,
since this is a relatively new port (for a Sequent Symmetry), but I
used it (and compiled with it) heavily a year ago (and those files
still compile and run fine), so that's probably not the problem.

Can you offer any advice??
