Hi Stephan -

The current checked-in CVS gives the following error on compilation:

Error: attempt to call `CLIM-UTILS::_MALLOC' which is an undefined function.
  [condition type: UNDEFINED-FUNCTION]

This appears to be the same problem as Berthold experienced. That is, 
the file must be compiled before it is loaded. I can add the following 
patch to the CVS:

RCS file: /lingo/CVS/lkb/src/general/allegro-patches.lisp,v
retrieving revision 1.25
diff -r1.25 allegro-patches.lisp
<  (make-pathname :directory general-dir :name "clim"))
 >  (compile-file (make-pathname :directory general-dir :name "clim")))

However, even with this fix, compilation gives a number of warning 
messages (see below), and the fonts do not display correctly for me 
(tested with Hebrew).

;;; Compiling file /home/bmw20/lkb/src/general/clim.lisp
; While compiling
Warning: cond clause (PRINT FONTS *DEBUG-IO*) is unreachable
Warning: Free reference to undeclared variable LC-ALL assumed special.  This
         symbol may have been intended: EXCL::LC-ALL.
; While compiling (:TOP-LEVEL-FORM "clim.lisp" 10572):
Warning: String arguments passed to `X-SUPPORTS-LOCALE' will be converted
         because :STRINGS-CONVERT is assumed true.  The with-native-string
         macro can be used for explicit string conversions around the 
         calls.  This warning is suppressed when :STRINGS-CONVERT is 
         in the def-foreign-call.

         character set 7, matches with XListFonts,
but is not loadable by XLoadQueryFont.  Something may be wrong with the

X font

Andreas, can you suggest a fix for these problems?
