Ahh, yez. That "19d" would be the typo that should have said "18d".  ;-}

I have one of those!!

    $ head -4 cmucl.sgi/lib/subsystems/clx-library.sgif
    FASL FILE output from target:clx/package.lisp.
    Compiled Wednesday, 11/2/94 12:52:24 am EST on
    Compiler 1.0, Lisp pre-17f
    Targeted for SGI, FASL version 6

And also a circa-1999 18b, but I couldn't run either of them
since they're MIPS/Irix binaries and I no longer have access
to that platform. (*sigh*)
