Mac OS X 10.4 on PowerPC (released in 2005) is too old to be supported.

Building CLISP 2.38, building on Mac OS 10.4.4 with GCC 4.0.0, the FFI
does not get configured because the callback library's unit tests fail:
if these pass will the FFI be built.

Specifically the minitests fail:

Melchizedek (0)% ./minitests
void f(void):
void f(void):
int f(void):->99
int f(void):->99
int f(int):(1)->2
int f(int):(1)->2
int f(2*int):(1,2)->3
int f(2*int):(1,2)->3
int f(4*int):(1,2,3,4)->10
int f(4*int):(1,2,3,4)->10
int f(8*int):(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8)->36
int f(8*int):(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8)->36
int f(16*int):(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11,12,13,14,15,16,17)->143
zsh: illegal hardware instruction ./minitests
Melchizedek (132)%


i have the same problem on a Powerbook G4 500mhz with OS X 10.4.9. Tried
to build it via pkgsrc lang/clisp.

For more information look here please:
