Help with basic x86_64 assembler is ok, I did it for Cygwin with help
from Kai Tietz.
The main difference to Linux you have to look out for is the different
calling convention and how the registers are used:
So the job is typically to rearrange the register usage and to
account for the only four registers used for the first arguments
to a function, rather than the 6 registers in the SYSV ABI.
I might give it a try at some point, but I'm not highly motivated
someone who really cares about clisp steps forward to help. I'll
concentrate first on seeing if I can get some 64-bit version of

Yes, it seems to be. So far I've built and am testing a version with no
non-default modules, and with the default regexp module disabled. I had
to do the latter because of the gcc problem I encountered while trying
to compile regexi.c:
The same sort of error occurs with several other modules.
Huh, that's a good one! Something for Kai.
I tried to test my build by using it to build xindy. It appeared to
work, as far as it went, but it didn't go too far because xindy requires
the regexp module. So I think I'm stuck until the gcc problem is resolved.
I don't whether it's worth uploading my crippled clisp at this point
to let it get some testing. Reini, is clisp without regexp at all
Usually clisp users don't need the regexp module, they usually have
In that case, I think I'll go ahead and release what I have and see if
it's of use to anyone.
