[Openmcl-devel] Rebuilding CCL

I find that doing a (require "COCOA-APPLICATION") from the command- 
line always works for me.  Whenever I update from the IDE, however,  
the next time a restart I get an error in Hemlock (which I promise to  
make ticket for the next time it happens.  Honest.  Scout's honor.).

I've been building from the trunk for many months and had almost no  
problems doing this.  You might want to try doing this instead trying  
to update using the 1.3 DMG file as I do not think that set of files  
follows the trunk. Note that my version of CCL says "Welcome to  
Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.4-dev-r12265M-trunk  (DarwinX8664)!"
