The ffigen Trac environment isn't set up.  I just removed it, so the  
error shouldn't appear any more.

Clozure CL shows up twice because I want both trac.clozure.com/openmcl  
and trac.clozure.com/ccl to work.  I installed a symbolic link to make  
that work, so it looks like there are two Trac instances for the same  
thing.  I suppose I could have installed a redirect at the web server  
level, but I didn't do that.

There are links from http://www.clozure.com/clozurecl.html that go to  
the Trac page.

The Trac page (http://trac.clozure.com/ccl) seems pretty clear to me.   
There is a table on that page in the section called "Getting Clozure  
CL"  that includes links to archives for all the platforms.  Maybe I  
should put some animated dancing girls or something next to it so that  
it stands out better.

That'd be great.  If you find bugs, fixes would certainly be welcome.
