[Openmcl-devel] how to show doc strings?

Hi,

Could you help me figure out how to configure OpenMCL + SLIME to  
display the doc strings
with (slime-describe-function) in Emacs? For CLisp and SBCL they are  
displayed by default if I press C-c C-f (slime-describe-function),  
for OpenMCL -- not :-/

OpenMCL 1.1-r7534 (DarwinPPC32)
Either the stable SLIME 2.0 or the latest from CVS, it doesn't matter  
in this case

OpenMCL is built from the sources without any changes in  
configuration parameters. SLIME is put for Emacs unchanged, too.

A simple example to be clear:

---------------------------
(defun foo (a b)
   "A doc string to display in Emacs by hitting C-c C-f"
   (+ a b))

(foo 1 2)
---------------------------


Thank you in advance!

- Eugene
