My bad.  I got ECL compiling clem, just forgot how hard it was.  Whenever 
you get one of these errors, restart ECL and try again.  For some reason, 
it gets a little further each time and eventually finishes.  I didn't 
actually test that things run properly.

FWIW, these errors appear to be due to the metaclasses not loading 
properly during ASDF compilation.  Eval-whens didn't even work.

Things go just fine if you simply
(load "src/defpackage.lisp")
(load "src/metaclasses.lisp")
(load "src/early-matrix.lisp")

This might be an interesting test case for the ECL crew.
