For whatever reason, on my Mac, this fails test-clean-load on lispworks.

But I'm not sure where the output of test clean load goes, so I don't
know what's going wrong.  There's no obvious bad output in

Running under make I get an error 65 for

make test-clean-load l=lispworks

Running -c lispworks

I get no output at all, but the exit code is 65.

Still investigating.

Possibly this is just some mess in my lispworks copy.
