Hi, Chris

Can I ask, what's your porting progress now? I'm interesting in  
running some Lisp applications on Solaris x86-64, I'm still thinking  
which of my favorite CL (clozure and sbcl) to try:)

I have some 64-bit servers, and a Solaris 10 5/08 installed through  
VMware on my Mac computer, I thought a try to cross-compile Clozure CL  
from Darwin to Solaris is quite meaningful to me.
