And the question I've been working on is: why is sbcl not
autobuilding. I've been uploading new versions trying to fix
autobuilding. The main problem seems to be that a build-dependency
[common-lisp-controller] is reported to already be installed by the
autobuilder, but SBCL's postinst is failing to find the scripts that
should be installed with common-lisp-controller.
For example, from
Build-Depends: debhelper (>> 4.1.16), sbcl, docbook-dsssl, common-lisp-controller (>= 3.56)
Checking for already installed source dependencies...
common-lisp-controller: already installed (in sufficient version 3.71 >= 3.56)
Setting up sbcl (0.8.1-1) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/sbcl.postinst: line 36: clc-autobuild-impl: command
So while the autobuilder thinks that common-lisp-controller is already
installed, it is not truly installed.
I'm working on uploading binary versions of sbcl to work around the
