Perhaps you meant "system declarations"?

By "package declarations" I understand defpackage forms, and I meant
that it was not enough, since to do what you want, that is, build lisp
programs, you need to add information over the bare defpackage forms.
The proof is in the fact that the defpackage form doesn't list all the
qualified symbols used by the code in that package.
