Numerical and String Builtins

Builtins expecting (a usually variable number of) constants (numbers or strings) are handled by a single LLAMA instruction ll-builtin; this instruction was introduced to keep the number of different LLAMA instructions as small as possible.

In our prototypical COMMON LISP implementation, all these builtins can be handled by COMMON LISP itself. If they should be re-implemented in any other language, the definitions given in section 3.2.6 can be used.
