There should be a file clisp/src/VERSION. If not, you have a very old
version and should definitely get newer sources.

On FreeBSD-1.0.2 (or so), attempts to bring up CLISP failed.

On NetBSD 1.0 Beta, Douglas Crosher <dtc@scrooge.ee.swin.oz.au> did
the port and then fixed bugs in NetBSD's mmap management, in order to
get CLISP's generational GC working.

I don't know which of these fixes were copied to FreeBSD-2.0.5.

Recommendation: Remove the src/*.o files, add -DSAFETY=3 to the CFLAGS
in the makefile, and restart "make". Then please find out about the
least SAFETY level that produces a working lisp.run and lispinit.mem, and
tell Marcus about it.
