automatic-init specifies whether a LispWorks dynamic library should initialize automatically on loading. Automatic initialization is useful when the dynamic library does not communicate by function calls but prevents you from relocating the library if necessary or doing other initialization.
To deliver a dynamic library on Linux/Macintosh/FreeBSD, the build machine must have a C compiler installed. This is typically
(which is available on the Macintosh by installing Xcode).
