That's great!

I can see the error shown by the symbol-macrolet in the precompiler sources:

572 (defun precompile-lambda (form)
573   (let ((body (cddr form))
574         (precompiled-lambda-list
575            (precompile-lambda-list (cadr form)))
576         (*inline-declarations* *inline-declarations*))
577     (process-optimization-declarations body)
578     (list* 'LAMBDA precompiled-lambda-list
579            (mapcar #'precompile1 body))))

Before going on to process the lambda body statements in line 579,
precompile-lambda should establish variables from the lambda list
shadowing the symbol-macrolet...
