I just looked, and there is a sin of omission in the docs, you're just  
the first victim. Dan, could you please add the following bits to the  
following places in http://openmcl.clozure.com/Doc/ch02s01.html ?  
Thanks.

A second paragraph in the intro to 2.1.4 Living on the Edge:

IMPORTANT: Note that you can not easily upgrade a "normal" installation  
to the "bleeding edge" installation, because the normal installation  
represents a ccl directory that sits in the ccl-0.14 repository and the  
bleeding edge installation sources are maintained in a different  
repository, ccl-0.14-dev. Move or remove your existing ccl directory  
before checking out the dev sources and unpacking the binary and  
interface database pieces.
