I guess I also should provide the patch inline:

commit 2ca055895fb18aadcdbb3ab29f696c9fa63c1b62
Author: Samium Gromoff <_deepfire at feelingofgreen.ru>
Date:   Mon Dec 21 15:07:37 2009 +0300

    New condition, MISSING-DEFINITION, signalled when a sysdef locator fails.
    Thanks to Nikodemus Siivola for coming up with a portable way to check for file existence.
    Dead symlinks defeat all things like CL-FAD:FILE-EXISTS-P.
