The defsystem file is assuming that ECL uses the Cltl2 IN-PACKAGE macro, which 
I think had some extra options. Instead, defsystem should use DEFPACKAGE.

I have ported defsystem.lisp to ECL (Two lines fixed). This served me to find 
a bug in the compiler, which I fixed. The fixed bug is in CVS. The 
defsystem.lisp package is in the new download area for lisp tools


This area will contain all packages which I or anybody else can port to ECL, 
but only as far as their corresponding packages in CLOCC, CCLAN, etc, do not 
implement the required patches.
