Depending upon how similar Fink packages are to Debian packages, you
are welcome to use my Debian packing as a start.

Currently, I maintain 26 packages in the Debian distribution
(http://b9.com/debian.html). Most of them are Lisp related.

I don't know if Fink uses the debian subdirectory of a package for
building a Fink package. For a fair number of upstream packages, I've
been given CVS write access to the Debian directory.

So, I'm willing to volunteer maintaining a debian directory in
openmcl's CVS tree. Then, depending upon how Fink packages are made,
this may faciliate keeping fink & debian packages synchronized.

I'll likely test that when I get OS X reinstalled.

Thanks for the help!
