I don't understand how this error comes to be. I tried with the
ubuntu-provided clisp 2.49 (1:2.49-9ubuntu1) instead of the one I
custom-built from HEAD a few weeks ago, and it works fine, too. And so
I can't debug a problem I can't reproduce and can't fathom.

Can you identify what command is being run? e.g. by tracing
run-program in test-program.script. How does the dumped clisp
executable image behave without any of the provided arguments? Is
there some hidden configuration file that is biting us? Are we failing
to disable configuration files when calling the image?
