with basically no testing so far: builds ok.

Creating a new bug or what? [2] seems inappropriate.

I've found this that I guess has to do with the new readline:

So, something with 'rl_readline_state' and how clisp uses that has
changed that I won't dig into right now. Clisp maintainers?

That seems to be the only problem with readline-7.0/bash-4.4 on this
install (so far).


  The use of COBOL cripples the mind; its teaching should,
  therefore, be regarded as a criminal offence.
