I am trying to get slime working with openmcl, but emacs/openmcl's answer to
M-x slime keeps being:

(load "/Users/boristschirschwitz/builds/slime/swank-loader.lisp" :verbose t)
(swank:start-server "/tmp/slime.638" :external-format :iso-latin-1-unix)

Now, I did succeed in googling for this problem, apparently I have to do 
something about the interface database.
I also RTFM, but the full archive is supposed to contain the database.
After downloading and installing the database the error persists.

After building from CVS the error still persists.

Could it still be me being stupid?

PS: It's the up-tp-date CVS slime
