/usr/share/doc/clisp/* is all the doc there is.
or do you want .../clisp-2.31/?
(everyone is different - cygwin/RH, debian ...)

nothing cygwin-specific is needed.
unix/INSTALL is all you need.
CLISP builds OOTB.

Oh boy....

I upgraded to 1.5.3 last Friday and I cannot _configure_!
the configure scripts fail with:

./configure --with-module=syscalls --with-module=regexp --build --fsstnd=redhat --with-module=dirkey --with-module=bindings/win32 --with-module=clx/new-clx --with-libsigsegv-prefix=/usr/local/libsigsegv-cygwin build-O
executing /cygdrive/d/gnu/clisp/current/build-O/avcall/configure --srcdir=../../ffcall/avcall --with-module=syscalls --with-module=regexp --with-module=dirkey --with-module=bindings/win32 --with-module=clx/new-clx --with-libsigsegv-prefix=/usr/local/libsigsegv-cygwin --cache-file=../config.cache
configure: error: invalid package name: module

the cause is an `expr' call which unexpectedly fails.
if I add any other `expr' call right before the failing one, it works...
