Ah.  I didn't know that Femlisp was integrated already well in
Quicklisp.  This is nice to know.

You must tell Femlisp where to find the triangle executable.  You could
do this in the file "femlisp:femlisp-config" by setting the variable
*triangle-path*.  Since you installed it locally with Femlisp you could
simply use the path #p"femlisp:external;triangle;triangle".

(Once there was a command find-executable in CMUCL/SBCL which could find
executables on the system and which I used also at this place.
Unfortunately, it was abandoned some years ago because of difficulties
of providing i portably across operating systems.)
