trying to compile ECL from sources today failed:

if [ -f CROSS-COMPILER ]; then \
        ./CROSS-COMPILER < compile.lsp; \
else \
        ./ecl_min < compile.lsp; \
;*** Lisp core booted ****
ECLS (Embeddable Common Lisp)  16384 pages

> #<"SI" package>
Unrecoverable error: 
Lisp initialization error.

gmake[1]: *** [ecl] Fehler 134

A backtrace shows:

This happens when ecl_min loads bare.lisp, but I could not find out
where exactly.

Any sufficiently complicated C or Fortran program
contains an ad hoc informally-specified bug-ridden
slow implementation of half of Common Lisp.
