Hello Everybody,

I am trying to install and compile Ontoligua on a SUN

;;; Sun Common Lisp, Development Environment 4.0.0 , 6 July 1990
;;; Sun-4 Version for SunOS 4.0.x and sunOS 4.1 
;;; Copyright (c) 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990
;;;            by Sun Microsystems, Inc.,  All Rights Reserved
;;; Copyright (c) 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990
;;;            by Lucid, Inc., All Rights Reserved

Unfortunately, the compiler gives the following error message

>>Error: (:QUALIFIERS NIL :LAMBDA-LIST (KB) :SPECIALIZERS (#<Standard-Class KB>) :FUNCTION #<Compiled-Function (:INTERNAL NIL 0) C5D91E>) is not a valid initialization argument list in this call to MAKE-INSTANCE
   Required arg 0 (CLASS): #<Standard-Class STANDARD-METHOD>
   Rest arg 1 (INITARGS): (:QUALIFIERS NIL :LAMBDA-LIST (KB) :SPECIALIZERS (#<Standard-Class KB>) :FUNCTION #<Compiled-Function (:INTERNAL NIL 0) C5D91E>)
:C  0: Try loading #P"/tmp_mnt/home/lehrnix/schulze/onto/gfp/lisp/iterator-definitions" again
:A  1: Abort to Lisp Top Level

This error occurs when loading  "gfp/lisp/iterator-definitions.sbin"
but the problem occurs in the code of REGISTER-LOOP-EXPANDER in the
file "gfp/lisp/macros.lisp", which also produces a lot of warnings 
of the kind 

;;; Warning: (METHOD KB-ID (KB)) KB-ID defined more than once in "gfp/lisp/macros.lisp"

Any help would be appreciated. - Otherwise I will have to find
financial support to buy Lucid CL or Allegro CL.

I intend to use Ontolingua to build an ontology of molecular 
biological objects.
