Thanks for your submission.  I checked it out, and just committed
something quite close into both branches, as I've tested that the
change has no effect on the ansi test suite, maxima, acl2, nor axiom.
(Will also be testing the nqthm's, but expect all to be well here.)

What people should know about this change is that the
ADDITIONAL_FEATURES macro in the .h platform specific files is now
obsolete.  These were used in the vast majority of instances to get
cpu and system info into the *features* list -- now we put in the
results straight from configure's $host_cpu and $host_os.  

There were exactly 4 features other than these extant in the h/ files:  


Used in mingw.h -- no effect any longer in gcl_cmpmain.lsp


defined in several old h/ files -- never used.


defined for irix5.h, turns on a similarly named C compiler flag.  I
view this as obsolete, but the hooks are still there if anyone
wants/needs this port in the future.  This C flag is best added by
setting the CFLAGS shell environment variable before building.


Set in ./h/alpha-osf1.h and unused.

I have not edited the h files, just removed the effect of
ADDITIONAL_FEATURES in main.c, in case a reversal is needed in the

Take care,
