Common Lisp Quick Reference is a free (see file COPYING) booklet with
short descriptions of the thousand or so symbols defined in the ANSI

It builds well on a Debian system with the packages texlive-metapost,
texlive-latex-recommended, texlive-latex-extra, and their dependencies

On FreeBSD, (at least) ports gmake and texlive-full are required.

If you have those dependencies in place, type

  $ make

and be patient.

If you end up with three blank pages at the end you can try to blank a
fourth page by changing




in file paper-<your-papersize>.tex.
