I think (hope) there are not so many places in CL which allow to couple the code with the host compiler.
Maybe this example with most-postivive-fixnum (-negative-long-float, etc) is the only one?
If so, it must be very very rare case.

Such problematic macro can be easily be adjusted to use some configurable
parameter *target-most-positive-fixnum* instead of cl:most-positive-fixnum.
