CLISP includes some support for memory allocation primitives provided

That's a system-call diagnostic code.
Here's what the Solaris 2.5.1 manpage (man -s 2 intro) has to say:
74 EMULTIHOP Multihop attempted
This error is RFS specific. It occurs when users try
to access remote resources which are not directly

Por favor, responda yes(si) o no(no):

If simple lexical substitution following the CLISP code as it is
results in awkward Spanish, just tell me how you would like it to
look, and I'll make the changes (or if it is easier, hack it yourself
and I'll tweak it afterward if necessary).
