       The version of PCL provided with EW is the AAAI Day version (August
       1988).  Since we have been using Victoria Day, Rainy Day, and now, May
       Day PCL, we knew we were gonna have to convert EW for those versions.

       Here's a (hopefully somewhat complete and accurate) list of changes we
       made that make EW compatible with May Day PCL (should be fine with Rainy
       Day, too; don't know about Victoria Day, though).

    What do these PCL version designations correspond to? 

AAAI Day PCL is the August 1988 version
Victoria Day PCL is the May 1989 version
Rainy Day PCL is the February 1990 version
May Day PCL is the May 1990 version

May Day PCL is the final release of PCL. 

    How do I know which one I have?  

You can look at the variable PCL::*PCL-SYSTEM-DATE*, which is defined at
the top of the defsys.lisp file of the pcl directory.

    When I got EW I couldn't get it to run under lcl 3.0, so I ftped
    myself the latest pcl from arisia.xerox.com...

You will need to modify EW to run with Victoria, Rainy, or May Day PCL.
(see the previous message for a list of those modifications). Also note
that you should be able to compile EW without PCL at all, though I
haven't tried that myself.
