Here is a more constructive message on what is external to the LISP package

I list the offending symbols.  Then I list very simple code for computing
these differences.

A lisp implementation that is compliant with the ANSI standard needn't
have a package named LISP at all.  The standard package that is required
is COMMON-LISP (with nickname CL).  Many of the symbols you are looking
for are external symbols in the COMMON-LISP package.  The package LISP
(if it is provided) is not required to be the same as COMMON-LISP.  Portable
ansi CL code should not use the LISP package.

gcl has had too many external symbols in the COMMON-LISP
package, though (1104 in the version of gcl I have here built with
--enable-ansi; cvs head may be different.)
