I'm not sure if this is something that you, Gary, or Mikel would be 
best equipped to deal with, but I've run into the following error when 
trying to build bosco under OpenMCL version 0.14-031220:

raffaelc$ openmcl -l bosco.asd -e "(make)"

Type :? for other options.

Again, I don't know whether this reflects a mistake on my part, a bug 
in bosco, or a problem introduced with 12/20, since I've never tried to 
build bosco with a previous version of OpenMCL, and I no longer have an 
older version to test with.

Thanks in advance for any assistance,

warmest regards,
