I [moved the execution of of 'system.lisp'][1] later in the boot after 
the condition system has been initialized so that conditions now drop to 
the debugger.

And [there is now a facility to customize the code in 'system.lisp'][2] 
as part of the Ant build:  set the Ant property 'abcl.startup.file' to 
refer to a file whose forms will be appended.

Please let me know if this doesn't work out for you.
