Thanks a lot Sam, I wasn't aware of that!!!
This will save me a lot of work!

I'l look at the packages configuration of my Cygwin instalation and eventually install it and try it out.

Thanks a lot again,

cygwin already comes with clisp.
clisp cygwin maintainer (Reini Urban) will probably package ffcall for cygwin too.
ask on the cygwin mailing list.

I maybe should have mentioned that I am trying to compile using "cygwin" under M$ Windows.

your only option at this time is CVS.
it us sufficiently stable, see
note that some linux distributors (e.g., debian)
already package ffcall.
others (e.g., fedora) should start doing that soon.

When trying to compile CLISP, it seems that I have to have libffcall, but it is nowhere available on the net as an downloadable archive (zip, tarball) etc.
(The tab download here is also empty)

I am very new to software engineering and don't want to go use CVS at ths moment, not sure if this is a usable/stable version.

Could you please make available an archive for download on this site or any other site.

Tgank you,
