[Armedbear-devel] How to load compiled Lisp stuff from a jar

If the problem is the use of reader macros foiling introspection by
ASDF-JAR, then probably Fare's addition of :FEATURE to the ASDF system
definition language is just what you need.

:FEATURE is evaluated at load time, thus not messing up ASDF's knowledge of
what is and isn't "really there" in the system. So you could try replacing
use of #+ with :FEATURE and see if that makes your problems go away.

I stumbled on this in a case which sounds similar: I was re-loading a
system into a dumped image, and the semantics of the reader macros was all
wonky, because they were interpreted at image save time, not at the time
that I was trying to load the system....
