SPARC times

Below are runs on a Sun-4/280, showing Sun/Lucid and AKCL times for
the same test and same compiler settings as in the last couple of
messages.  Is it fair to time Lucid 2.1.3, or is 2.1.3 too old?  It's
the only version I have on this Sun-4.

These times below seem to show AKCL with a 1 microsecond funcall
(after subtracting out the do-cost) and Sun/Lucid with a 1.5
microsecond funcall.

As you say, this microtiming stuff is extremely treacherous.  The main
point of my publicizing these tests was just to point out that AKCL
now really has a much better and really competitive funcall IF you
make the right proclamations.  I hope no one will misconstrue these
runs as a sweeping, allegedly scientific claim about the speeds of the
various Lisp compared.  It's just a little evidence.
