Current version is in unstable:
clisp | 1:2.27-0.5 | unstable | source, alpha, i386, powerpc, s390
That program has MANY portability problems which prevent it to enter
testing. It fails building on sparc,arm,m68k,hppa,ia64.
My current proposal is reducing the number of supported archs for clisp
and so downgrade all serious bugs. Sad to say, we cannot work instead of the
upstream in solving all those issues, sorry.
