[Openmcl-devel] safe (on most platforms) to go back in the CCL trunk.

The CCL trunk now contains binaries (lisp kernels and heap images) that 
can be used to compile the trunk sources
on x664 (all platforms), on x8632 (Linux, Darwin, and Windows), and on 
ARM Linux.  We are still working on x8632
support for FreeBSD and Solaris.

On all platforms, some of the compiler changes are difficult to 
bootstrap with older versions of CCL, if you have locally
modified your copies of the kernel or heap image, recall that 'svn 
update' will not overwrite locally modified binary files.
You need to delete or rename locally modified versions of the kernel and 
heap image before doing 'svn update' or
use 'svn revert' or similar means to ensure that your local copies of 
these files match the repository versions.

The 'Welcome' banner should announce  'Version 1.12-dev-<some svn 
rev>-trunk'; REBUILD-CCL of the current trunk sources from an older 
version will encounter (possibly cryptic) errors.

If you can do so, please test this version and report any problems that 
you encounter.
