moreover, we have to distribute the clisp executable (which is called
xindy.run on unix and xindy-lisp.exe on woe32 and cygwin), in order to
use this xindy.mem file.

and since we need to distribute clisp executable, we should build it
using a procedure described in
to minimize shared library dependencies.

the change in xindy 3.0 (which is not yet part of texlive) was that
there is no more a demand for working external modules functionality
(ffi) of clisp, and the build procedure is slightly simplified. but
otherwise, we still need to build a custom clisp.
