Well, I haven't tried to use any of the "extra" stuff yet, but the base
image ran on my FreeBSD 2.2.6 system right out of the box after I did this:

	% mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/cmucl
	% cd /usr/local/lib/cmucl
	% zcat $WHERE_I_PUT_IT/cmucl-18b.x86.freebsd22.tgz | tar xvBf -
	...tar chatter...
	% zcat $WHERE_I_PUT_IT/cmucl-18b.x86.freebsd22.extra.tgz | tar xvBf -
	...tar chatter...
	# the next line is personal preference, use ".../lisp" if you like.
	% ln -s /usr/local/lib/cmucl/bin/lisp /usr/local/bin/cmucl
	# make "man cmucl" and "man lisp" work
	% cd /usr/local/man/man1
	% ln -s /usr/local/lib/cmucl/man/*.1 .
	% cd
	% rehash
	% cmucl
	CMU Common Lisp 18b, running on [machine-name]
	Send questions and bug reports to your local CMU CL maintainer,
	or to and respectively.
	Loaded subsystems:
	    Python 1.0, target Intel x86
	    CLOS based on PCL version:  September 16 92 PCL (f)
	*  (values (+ 2 3) (* 2 3))

	* (quit)

Hope that helps...


p.s. You may also want to edit /usr/local/lib/cmucl/lib/site-init.lisp
(but since there's just me using it, I haven't bothered yet).
