what do you mean?
there are many files in /usr/share/doc/clisp-2.38 and only one in

there is no --with-module=postgresql, so this won't hurt.

setup.hint contains this:
requires:crypt cygwin libdb4.3 libiconv2 libintl3 libncurses8 libpcre0 libreadline6 zlib

PS. clisp cygwin package maintenance involves these steps:

1. download CLISP sources from

2. build CLISP package:
$ tar xfj clisp-<ver>.tar.bz2
$ cd clisp-<ver>
$ ./configure --with-module=rawsock --with-module=pcre --with-module=zlib \
     --build build-cygwin
$ cd build-cygwin
$ make cygwin-src distrib TAR_SRC=../../clisp-<ver>.tar.bz2

3. upload

this is it - cygwin.README, setup.hint &c are auto-generated.

Since I am changing jobs and will no longer have access to woe32
machines and thus cygwin, I will not be able to offer clisp cygwin
packages on a timely basis.  Would you like to step in?
