The first thing to check is to comment out the ONLY_FOR_ARCH stuff in the p=
Makefile and see where the build fails. Sometimes a newer version starts
working on a previously excluded architecture, and it takes a while for that
to get noticed.

If the build of your favorite lisp still fails, you'll have to dive into the
source to see what's wrong. It might be something relatively easy to fix. S=
familiarity with C is probably required, though. :-)

In that case, check the patches that Debian uses on SPARC, and see if you c=
fix the FreeBSD port with those.
