that file has a few comments in Spanish, and it seems to be encoded as
Latin-1 (not UTF-8).

$ file -I pdf-geom.lisp
pdf-geom.lisp: text/x-lisp; charset=iso-8859-1

I can't reproduce the problem on MacOSX (I'm using a check-out though,
not the clbuild copy), but deleting the comments will probably make
the problem go away.
