Windows Installer: Automatically find the newest wxMaxima release

 - The maxima release no more needs to know the maxima version
 - All updating wxMaxima in the Windows Installer requires from
   now on is building a new Windows Installer.

 - Often all version numbers being fixed is an requirement, too.

As my private linux box only contains 4 Gigabytes of RAM and
8 Gigabytes are necessary for building an Windows Installer this
commit is entirely untested, unfortunately.

ChangeLog/Windows installer: Remove wxMaxima's version number

For maxima's changeLog it should be sufficient to tell that the
wxMaxima contained in the maxima windows installer was updated
to a new version.

Viktor has asked once if we could make the Windows Installer
automatically use the current wxMaxima version if a new
Windows Installer is built.

In theory the following patch should archive this. But I've
no possibility to test if that works in reality, too, as
my Linux box has only 4 Gigabytes of RAM (8 are needed
in order to build a Windows Installer):

Remove some unused functions

This removes the unused functions NPRINC*, NEW-COMMENT-LINE and
PRINT-MODULE that were previously used by the translator. The
last uses of NEW-COMMENT-LINE and PRINT-MODULE were removed in
commit 11be1c1f in 2011. NPRINC* was only used in PRINT-MODULE.

Nightly test: update sbcl

Remove the obsolete STATE-PDL special variable

As the names implies, STATE-PDL was a stack representing state. In
Macsyma there were different symbols that would be pushed onto this
stack to represent what was going on at the time. Some examples
MACSYMA-BREAK and LISP-BREAK. Then other code would check what was
on this stack and conditionally perform some tasks based on what it

This stack does not serve any useful purpose now. Besides the
initial value of LISP-TOPLEVEL, only PLAYBACK could be pushed onto
the stack (but nothing checks for it) and only EDIT would be checked
for (but nothing pushes it). Other code used to check for PLAYBACK
and the old MEDIT module used to push EDIT.

No problems with the test suite or share test suite.

Here are some examples on an old Macsyma:

(C1) ?print (?state\-pdl)$

(C2) break ()$
MACSYMA-BREAK (Type EXIT; to exit.)
_?print (?state\-pdl)$
Exited from the break
Computation continuing.

(C3) to_lisp ()$
QUIT (Into LISP. Type control-G to get to MACSYMA.)
