Ok, thanks. Note that I currently use the GNUEMACS 18.xx (not the beta
version on Aminet). I'll see if cmulisp.el is part of the package I have.

>Q1:what do you mean by clisp.el?
I meant some kind of package dedicated to clisp. You answered me: cmulisp.el

Hope, I've got it yet.
It seem that I'll do some kind of (autoload ...) in my .emacs tonight :)

(Silly question) What is a FFI ?

I use CLISP for research work, last year I made my project  of Master of
Science with it (a Lambda-Calculus interpreter) and since I was VERY
pleased with it, I made some advertising at the University for it.
I'll use it this year to do research (I am in DEA (between Master of
Science and PhD, I guess)). There is and abstract:
Applying Rewriting to Object Specifications
Use rewriting to give operational semantics to a Formal Object Model
(formal classes) developped at the University.
Language: CLOS.
Team: Equipe de Recherche en Technologie Objet
      Object Technologies Research Team
      IRIN - Universite de Nantes, France
I don't have special need, apart from beeing able to use a Common Lisp
respecting the norms (ANSI X3J13 I think ...) and making my programs
running both at the University (DEC Alpha) and at Home (A12oo).

I'm interested in everything that makes Amiga-CLISP closer than
-say- the UNIX version.
As far as the .o are concerned, I'm also interested in interoperability
problems (i.e. using object classes between different languages, see
SOM, and the Formal Class Model). Could be useful.

>2. who has been able so far to build an own CLISP?
I guess I could try but
- don't have time right now
- got GCC2.6.2 (+2.6.3 but: to install)

>3. Where to put special archives containing .o files? Remember that

I've go -high. What is -wide ?
I'd put .o files with the sources archive (.lsp/.fas)
I'd add emacs' stuff and some kind of LispTOLateX driver with it.
I'd put also pointers to the mail-list, news-lists, books...
It could be some kind of package for intensive users. Others could cope
with the current way of doing I think.

Ok !
But, as far as GNU-ld is concerned, I think more than 3/4 of the CLISP
users that will use this package should have GCC at home.
Note that GNU-ld comes from GCC-2.6.3.
My solution:
 - put GNU-ld with it for say, one or two versions
 - after that, when everyone should have GCC-2.6.3 (or higher) GNU-ld
   should no longer be needed.

Well, bye.
I'm going back home to see if I have the emacs files you told me about.
