I didn't expect you to rebuild it yourself; it's not so easy.  I would 
expect there to be rpms for 19d somewhere.  Or you can grab a tarball 
for 19d (see www.cons.org/cmucl) and untar it somewhere and use that to 
build maxima.  The tarball is easy to install because it can be placed 
anywhere.

The backtrace for sbcl looks weird because it looks like open is called 
with on other additional flags, which doesn't make sense.  Perhaps I 
don't know how to read sbcl's backtrace.
