Peter, after r16701-2 commit xindy-new builds fine on FreeBSD,
thank you very much.

Now, regarding the idea to try FreeBSD clisp port to reduce .so
dependencies, it seems that it gives very good results.

I noticed that (1) xindy-new copies clisp binary to make its
xindy.run, unlike current xindy which uses lisp.run for that
purpose, and that (2) clisp binary built through FreeBSD port
(lang/clisp, clisp-2.48) has only libc as a dependency.

I therefore built xindy-new with --with-clisp-runtime pointing to
/usr/local/bin/clisp. After gmake install and arranging directories
and links to mimic TL layout, it seems to work (tested in clean
environment without clisp installation).

So, if this is a correct way to do things, TL2010 xindy will have
minimalistic .so dependencies (just libc).
