yes, making xindy with OS-supplied clisp is acceptable for local build
but not acceptable for build which will be distributed in TeX Live,
because of shared library dependencies.

but there is a nice solution: first build clisp from source, with static
libffcall (and libsigsegv), and then build xindy for TeX Live using that
clisp (it supports the --with-clisp=PATH configure option so one can use
a clisp built from source, even without installing that clisp).

i'll send build instructions which allow to accomplish this later.
