You can't do such a thing. Compiled Lisp code is implementation
dependent. In general, you can not even be sure that two different
versions of the same implementation, or the same version on different
platforms, will be able to execute each other's compiled code.

For ABCL specifically, FASLs (compiled files) are portable across
platforms, and are generally compatible with several versions of ABCL
unless something big changed in the compiler between those versions
(in that case, the FASL version number is changed, too).
