sorry for posting (and not checking the tickets) if it is known already.
any hope for a solution soon? or is there a workaround (an easy one, that  

another point: `sbcl' has to be installed as a dependency of the computer  
algebra system `maxima' which is
written in lisp.

prior to my todays upgrading of the package descriptions there was a  

sudo port install maxima +clisp

which worked (i.e. clisp installed without problem)

by using `clisp' instead of the default `sbcl' as the lisp interpreter.  
now (after updating the package list), this variant is gone.
since maxima seems to have no maintainer I might probably ask here as  
well: does somebody know, why the `clisp' variant is
gone (it would help for now to get maxima running again...)?
