I moved the discussion about the linking sets to bug #177057  where
it belongs to, please continue there (again, no subscription required).
I also cc:ed the original submitter for that bug and the one for bug
#462085 , since I consider the second a duplicate of the first.
If Jörg Sommer will not disagree in one week, I will merge the two bugs.

I am fine with one package with two linking sets, but having two
separate packages is IMHO a better solution, since it will help people
who wants a minimal clisp installation.
Is there any disadvantage with two separate packages? What do the
original submitters think?
