I didn't take time to try with a more recent version of slime yet,

previous ECL builds.  This is using today's ECL CVS HEAD.

Also, I have no problem with my own software using compile-file and
I'll also try with an up to date slime when I have more time, but I
wanted to post this in case the origin of the problem seems obvious to
