The ffigen Trac environment isn't set up. I just removed it, so the
error shouldn't appear any more.
Clozure CL shows up twice because I want both trac.clozure.com/openmcl
and trac.clozure.com/ccl to work. I installed a symbolic link to make
that work, so it looks like there are two Trac instances for the same
thing. I suppose I could have installed a redirect at the web server
level, but I didn't do that.

There are links from http://www.clozure.com/clozurecl.html that go to
the Trac page.
The Trac page (http://trac.clozure.com/ccl) seems pretty clear to me.
There is a table on that page in the section called "Getting Clozure
CL" that includes links to archives for all the platforms. Maybe I
should put some animated dancing girls or something next to it so that
it stands out better.

That'd be great. If you find bugs, fixes would certainly be welcome.
