Ah, that makes sense now!  Note that [this test code remains in trunk][1] as part of the ABCL-TEST-LISP ASDF definition.  

The tests cover a really small set of functionality, either for jlinker or ABCL, so they don't contribute that much information on the completeness of ABCL (not that dmiles claimed that  they did.)
