I've checked into CVS the fixes necessary to compile and run the LKB 
under SBCL. I've checked that it will happily process a test suite with 
a (relatively) small grammar (Petter's NorSyg); but note that the 
process chokes when attempting to load the ERG (see my last email). The 
source code is now available via the following public CVS (thanks to 
Stephan; no password):

 cvs -d :pserver:public at lingo.stanford.edu:/lingo/CVS login
 cvs -d :pserver:public at lingo.stanford.edu:/lingo/CVS co lkb

Harold, please let me know how you get on. Ståle, I've not yet tried to 
compile with XML support under SBCL; hence SMAF preprocessing support is 
absent at present.
