Well, that's a considerably shorter list than Karl's, at least. But I
Martin's, actually. Mine was shorter :).
We obviously can't usefully distribute binaries that dynamically link
against such things as libsigsegv. It probably means building clisp
from source is a practical requirement to avoid all that stuff.
Vladimir and I are discussing it.
resulting version of xindy will be missing certain features/
capabilities. Or does it mean those libs were statically linked?
I suspect they got pulled in because of the distro's clisp, not because
of xindy. Obviously xindy does not use postgres, for example.
Anyway, for now, Build --disable-xindy is your friend.
