I did not try the MKant's defsystem which seems to be a good choice if you
want to be portable.
However, you can also download the Cartiers-contribs-1.2 from
cambridge.apple.com in the folder /pub/mcl2/contrib. Among the very useful
contribs, you will find a defsystem (called defunit) that is easy to use.
You can also download the geta-unit-browser from the same directory, it is
a interface to browse (no edition) through your units.
GETA has also posted a patch for defunit (called geta-defunit-patch) that
allows you put your unit definition anywhere in a special folder called the
working-folder (the first time you use it, you will be prompted with a
dialog that asks you to choose your working folder (where your code, units,
... are on your disk)). This folder is saved in a preference file (in the
Cartiers-contrib directory), called cc-pref.
This patch allows a kind of plug-and-play with your units.
