Porting code to new PCL

     An MIT class for which I'm the teaching assistant has course software
which was written to run with old versions of pcl and lucid.  I was trying to
patch it so, I could bring it up on the unix boxes in the AI lab which run
Lucid version 3 (the code now runs with an old version of pcl on Lucid 2.x).
Iftp a copy of the new release of pcl from xerox.com and it compiles fine on a
sparc.  However when I try to compile the clas software I get all kinds of
conflicts between methods with the same name (defined on different classes)
which have different numbers of arguments.  Are there any PCL wizards out there
how would be willing to talk to me about this stuff?


P.S. - Some of the files have (defclass foo ..) and (defmethod bar ...) in the
same file, so I put in the two (pushnew 'compile ...) described in the notes.
