[Openmcl-devel] Failed to rebuild CCL on FreeBSD

The x86-64 backend's ability to compare fixnum constants faded in and out
right around the time of r7436; r7436 fixed one case and broke another;
the newly-introduced bug was fixed a few days later (r7443).  For about
30 hours (on October 13-14), more cases failed, including:


where the x86-64 backend concluded that 239 was in fact greater than 256.

If you've built a list from r7436 (as the Welcome banner indicates), you
may find that it's easier to go all the way back to the last set of
binaries/snapshots and endure more warnings when compiling the current
source.  If you do this, you should probably do:

? (rebuild-ccl :full t)         ; rather than :FORCE

:FORCE will recompile everything, but will load some old FASLs in some
cases; any FASLs compiled with r7436 are probably suspect, and the :FULL
option will delete all FASLs before compiling anything.
