The problems with BUNDLE-OP were triaged  to problems in ABCL's use of :WILD-INFERIORS on directories referred to via symlinks.  OS X symlinks /private/tmp to /tmp which was why the problem was mysteriously not working only on this platform.

This error was fixed when I [finished re-working DIRECTORY to default to :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS as nil][r14624] which currently exists in abcl-1.3.0-dev.  

If you wish to conditionalize on the fix, the form 
    (not (second (third (sys::arglist 'directory))))

should return T for versions of ABCL that work with BUNDLE-OP on OS X.

We supposedly releasing ‘abcl-1.3.0’ real soon now, but this has been the case for several months, as time (and more bugs) kept cropping up.

"A screaming comes across the sky.  It has happened before but there is nothing 
to compare to it now."
