  thanks for that URL - download was fine, the *features* problem
  claiming my system to be a BSD368 with MC68020 still exist and
  looks trivial to patch. Questions here :

  the other GNU Common Lisp's I tested [1] had every symbol in the
  *feature* list prefixed with a ":". So UNIX should be :UNIX, even
  if any of the reader macro's ignored the (non)existence of the ":",
  when asking for #+UNIX. I now wonder, if the ":" prefix is necesary
  by the ansi specs or just by the beauty of source.

with kind regards,

[1]: GCL, ECL, CLISP, ARMEDBEAR - are there any other Lisp's qualifying
  for being free in term of GNU and Common Lisp in terms of ANSI ?
  elisp is the most common GNU lisp - but its not Common Lisp ;)
