[Openmcl-devel] Clozure CL 1.2 released - building the IDE, where are working instructions?

Good news.

But somehow I can't find working documentation how to build the IDE.

I've downloaded the 1.2 TAR file for Mac OS X Intel.

So where do I find documentation on the CCL wiki start page that there  
is an IDE?

But there is some documentation. So I see:


5.2. Building the IDE
Building the Clozure CL IDE is now a very simple process.

	• In a shell session, cd to the ccl directory.
	• Run ccl from the shell. The easiest way to do this is generally to  
execute the ccl or ccl64 command.
	• Evaluate the form (require :cocoa-application)
For example, assuming that the Clozure CL distribution is installed in  
"/usr/local/ccl", the following sequence of shell interactions builds  
the IDE:

oshirion:ccl mikel$ ccl64 Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.2- 
r9198M-trunk (DarwinX8664)! ? (require :cocoa-application) ;Loading  
#P"ccl:cocoa-ide;fasls;cocoa-utils.dx64fsl.newest"... ;Loading  
#P"ccl:cocoa-ide;fasls;cocoa-defaults.dx64fsl.newest"... [...many  
lines of "Compiling" and "Loading" omitted...] Saving application to / 
usr/local/ccl/Clozure CL.app/ oshirion:ccl mikel$
Step two assumes that I know where the ccl or ccl64 commands are. But  
it is surely not the easiest way, since the
commands don't necessarily work.

RJMBP:ccl joswig$ ./scripts/ccl64
./scripts/ccl64: line 70: /usr/local/src/ccl/dx86cl64: No such file or  
./scripts/ccl64: line 70: exec: /usr/local/src/ccl/dx86cl64: cannot  
execute: No such file or directory

RJMBP:ccl joswig$ pwd

RJMBP:ccl joswig$ ./scripts/ccl64
Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.2-r10552  (DarwinX8664)!
? (require 'cocoa-application)
;Loading #P"ccl:cocoa-ide;fasls;cocoa-utils.dx64fsl.newest"...
;Loading #P"ccl:cocoa-ide;fasls;start.dx64fsl.newest"...
 > Error: Module EASYGUI was not provided by any function on *MODULE- 
 > While executing: REQUIRE, in process listener(1).
 > Type :POP to abort, :R for a list of available restarts.
 > Type :? for other options.

Which means that step three isn't working.

How should we change the documentation that somebody can build the IDE  
with CCL 1.2?
