It doesn't look like you are compiling from [SVN HEAD][1], as it should 
report "Armed Bear Common Lisp 0.17.0-dev" as of a couple weeks ago.  If 
your intention is to build the latest ABCL, I think you need to pull the 
correct source.  If you are trying to build an older version of ABCL, 
could you supply the URI you are using to build the source?

The only other piece of advice might be that OS X has sometimes 
non-obvious character case folding rules.  You might want to try 
renaming 'ABCL' to 'abcl' to see if that helps anything out.

I use OS X as my primary development environment for ABCL, so its not 
like you are trying to build on some sort of exotic enviroment.
