 Indeed, unless it's able to download a prebuilt SBCL it can't bootstrap
 with it (I keep some old SBCL around for this here).  But more recently
 bootstrapping with clisp worked for me; perhaps that should now be the
 default?

 Thanks,

 It is the default. So, one would have to build clisp to bootstrap sbcl and then
 rebuild sbcl using the sbcl bootstrapped with clisp to bootstrap sbcl with sbcl?

 Oh, I missed that it was already the default.

 Why do you want an SBCL-bootstrapped SBCL if clisp can bootstrap it?
 It only affects the bootstrap (building the initial compiler), so SBCL
 still builds its own world afterwards; then the binary package you have
 can be installed on other hosts without the clisp dependency.  It's
 been a little while I last built it, but I think this is how it works.

 Thanks,

 Okay, thanks for clearing that up. Then, pkgsrc is handling this correctly and
 the PR can be closed?

 If all else is fine with you, I have no objection :)

 I can't close it myself though, but a developer should pretty soon now
 that you want it closed.

 Happy Lisp hacking, BTW!

State-Changed-Why:
The excuse isn't acceptable, it should be fixed instead.
The problem is that circular dependency check was made unconditional,
such dependencies should be allowed for self-hosting software like SBCL.
