I hope that it is clear that I intend to continue to work on wh-sandbox
independently of possible merge.  In particular work in progress
 - sbcl port (bootstraps in private tree but fails some tests)
 - database bootstrap (database seem to build correctly, but
   has some problems which needs to be resolved)
 - removals of unused code from compiler/interpreter (I have
   sizable hunks waiting for removal).

I consider current wh-sandbox "almost ready" for merge (there are some
cleanups worth doing but they should be relatively small).  

svn diff between wh-sandbox and build-improvements is probably quite
large, mostly due to file removals.  If we do not take into account
files which are entirely (or almost entirely) removed and algebra
files (where wh-sandbox removed bootstrap Lisp) we get a diff of
780 kb (20456 lines).  The bulk of this is in interp directory
(about 11000 lines).  The second large piece is graph subdirectory
(about 3000 lines).  The next is new asq program.  Other changes
are relatively small.

Graph subdirectory should be a no brainer -- beside not having
AX_FLAGS in the Makefile.pamphlet the rest is prototype conversion
and one or two rather trivial bug fixes.

New asq has slightly different output compared to old one but in general
should work better.

Both graph and asq should be independent of other changes.

Well, enough for today: I will summarize other changes later.
