when compiling the Snark theorem prover (<http://www.ai.sri.com/~stickel/snark.html>, or with ASDF system definition at <https://github.com/hoelzl/Snark>),  ECL (version 12.7.1 on OSX 10.8.2, installed using homebrew) fails with an internal error:

Condition of type: COMPILE-ERROR
Error while invoking #<compile-op NIL 000000010de0f690> on #<cl-source-file "snark-implementation" "unify-bag">

The first offending function in unify-bag.c is the following

/*	local function G1253                                          */
/*	optimize speed 3, debug 0, space 0, safety 2                  */
static cl_object LC39__g1253(cl_object V1)
	const cl_env_ptr cl_env_copy = ecl_process_env();
	cl_object value0;
	value0=(aux_closure.env=env0,cl_env_copy->function=(cl_object)&aux_closure,LC49bind_yterm(2,ecl_make_fixnum(0),V1)) /*  BIND-YTERM */;
	return value0;

where the problem seems to be that the definition of STCK46 in unify-bag.eclh is

#define STCK46
static cl_object LC40__g1254(cl_object );

which does not include the definition of aux_closure.  As far as I can tell by looking at the C output, LC39__g1253 is part of the definition of the BIND-XTERM function, which is pretty hairy and defined inside a LABELS form.  Unfortunately I have no simple test case that triggers the error, so this is probably not be a particularly useful bug report.  Sorry about that.

Best regards,
