That is what I suspected -- since we all have functioning Axiom.
Thanks for the confirmation!

Yes; in my current experiment I've merged src/boot/boothdr.lisp and
src/boot/npextras.lisp into a single file.  That file is loaded in a
fresh Lisp image, and the result is saved, then re-used to build
bootsys.  That apparently is much simpler than current scheme and
saves us from many non-portability issues.

I haven't built ANSI GCL; I'll try.  Maybe it would be a good think to
have as a configure option for helping check portability issues.

Ah!  Now, I know why I don't use Lisp for everyday programming :-/

I'll stick to the string form.
Many thanks!
