Perfect! This means that you successfully compiled the PicoLisp

It must be that you have already installed a global PicoLisp from the
Ubuntu distribution, so that al that "bootstrapping" stuff is not
necessary. Once you have a picolisp running, it is used to build the new

"./picolisp" is not the recommended way. You should be in the installation
directory (the one you executed (cd src64; make) from, and then do

   $ ./pil +

or call

   $ ~/opt/picoLisp/pil +

from any place.

The point is to call 'pil' either with an absolute (like above) or a
relative path (e.g. ../foo/bar/pil +), or with the default path in which
case it resolves to /usr/bin/pil typically (i.e. the Ubuntu version in
your case).
