* To help distributors distribute memory images of clisp applications in
  package repositories, clisp has three new command-line options:
  $ clisp [-K linking-set] -memfile-hash
    Prints the hash code of the mem file binary interface.
  $ clisp [-K linking-set] -memfile-hash-of mem-file
    Prints the hash code of the mem file binary interface that was used to
    create this mem-file.
  $ clisp [-K linking-set] -memfile-compatible mem-file
    Returns 0 or 1, depending whether this mem-file is compatible with the
    linking-set or not.
  See <>
  for how to use these options.

* and much more; see src/NEWS for details.

According to [1], you are packaging clisp for Debian.

I invite you to give some testing to this beta release.
