Huh, that's a good one! Something for Kai.

the regexp module.  So I think I'm stuck until the gcc problem is resolved.

Usually clisp users don't need the regexp module, they usually have
better matchers.
But xindy needs it, so... :)

And the deal with the latest clisp 2.49 was that modules can be dynaloaded.
If the gnulib steps would work. I never did for me. And I fixed most of
the other
module compilation problems before.
