I get:

Filesystem error with pathname "build:clx;module.lisp".
 1) the file does not exist, or
 2) we are not allow to access the file, or
 3) the pathname points to a broken symbolic link.

when building ECL. This seems to be introduced by 'CLX registers itself
with *MODULES* and requires SOCKETS. Split SOCKETS's package definition
into a different file so that CLX can load it before being compiled.'.
