[armedbear-devel] ABCL has an incorrect belief about hostname and cpu in its fasl storage

Dear all,

I installed Armed Bear Common Lisp 1.0.1-svn-13750-13751 in order to run it on my OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard) 64-bit system (Darwin 10.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.8.0: Tue Jun  7 16:32:41 PDT 2011; root:xnu-1504.15.3~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64), for the purpose of executing cl-test-grid.

However, I observed that the fasls were being stored in ~/.cache/common-lisp/abcl-1.0.1-svn-13750-13751-fasl38-solaris-x86

You will quickly note that my system is neither solaris nor x86. 

However, I checked some of the environment settings:

 java -jar abcl.jar 
Armed Bear Common Lisp 1.0.1-svn-13750-13751
Java 1.6.0_31 Apple Inc.
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM
Low-level initialization completed in 0.619 seconds.
Startup completed in 1.511 seconds.
Type ":help" for a list of available commands.
CL-USER(1): *features*
CL-USER(2): (machine-instance)
CL-USER(3): (machine-type)
CL-USER(4): (software-type)
"Mac OS X"
CL-USER(5): (software-version)
CL-USER(6): (machine-version)

And they turn out correct.

I am not a regular ABCL user, so pardon me if this is already known.  If an OSX Snow Leopard system is not available for testing, I volunteer my time and machine to test a patch.
