OK, a quick and dirty first pass is to make the relevant line in
sysinit.lsp look like:

(clines "#define init_or_load(fn,file) do {extern void fn(void); 
init_or_load1(fn,file);}  while(0)")

It will then compile, with no lisp warnings, but some c warnings which
still need to be cleaned.  I ran it remotely over ssh forwarding X,
got unbound variables for *DEFAULT-DISPLAY* and *ROOT-WINDOW*, and
then a segfault as the Xcreatewindow routine tried to call
object_to_int on NULL.  I take it this is due to my not being at the
console, but this should definitely be handled more gracefully.  Don't
know if it is a bug in the lisp code at this point.  Comments

I think we can at least import this tree, and have a main makefile
target build xgcl.  

Hopefully, if I can complete the bfd work on mips, alpha, ia64, and
hppa (and windows x86 with Mike), we can start to use gcl as a normal
compiler, and won't have to save all these .o files for linking add-on
packages like this.  We could universally use save-system.
Alternatively, we could build and ship with gcl a libgcl with all but
main in it.  We definitely need to do at least one of these, as users
should not need the gcl source to build new images.

Hope this helps,
