[Openmcl-devel] just when you thought it was safe to go back in the CCL trunk

Most of the changes affect x8664, and I've been able to build and check 
in x8664 binaries for x8664 Linux,
Darwin, FreeBSD. and Win64.  I need to do some more smoke-testing on 
those platforms and document
the changes, but that's relatively straightforward and should not take 
much longer.

It is relatively straightforward to use the 64-bit CCL to cross-compile 
32-bit X86 versions on Linux, Darwin,
and FreeBSD.  I've done this, and 32-bit X86 binaries for these 
platforms are in the trunk and seem basically
stable but need more smoke-testing.

Win32 and ARM are a different story.  It may take a while (days, not 
weeks or months) to get these versions
running in the trunk, and some of that time (in the Win32 case) may 
involve setting up a less primitive development
environment than I have now.  I plan to do that soon, but it is also 
important to test and document the x8664 changes.
I will try to do that next, and get back to the Win32 and ARM ports later.

So: the X8664 versions should be ready soon, non-Windows X8632 versions 
a little later, ARM and Win32 later still.
