[slime-devel] *sysdep-files* as var

I propose *sysdep-files* is changed from a parameter to a var, so it  
can be bound before loading swank-loader.lisp. I need this for an  
enhanced swank loader that supports a lisp implementation not covered  
by the current *sysdep-files* options, but I believe it could be  
generally useful for those tinkering with swank.
