After extensive testing with some other possible module and feature

So please take the three urls from above.

Note that re-compiling from src is quite hairy and I couldn't trick some 
special m4 macros yet to spit out the correct LIBS.
So maybe you after a make failure, go need to go to build, fix makevars 
and make again. Sigh.

Packaging considerations:
--without-unicode will lead to problems with some asdf libraries out 
there. Easy to fix, but worthless. So you might need to call it
clisp -E 1:1
--with-module=matlab or pari requires those apps at loadtime, so a nono.
   I have a pari ready, but this will need more extensive testing.
--with-dynamic-modules, the real way we want to go - loading oracle, 
matlab, pari at run-time, i.e on request - is quite broken, but I'm 
almost on my way through.
fcgi is linked statically, so not needed as require. I haven't tested it 
with apache2, but from the command-line.
