I'm the one who knows. "oos" is just a shorthand for
"OPERATE-ON-SYSTEM". The funcall and intern business are there because
of some subtleties whose details escape me right now. Maxima just writes
out "mk:oos" in a very verbose way.


P.S. Perhaps you knew all that and you are worried about the difference
between "compile" and "minimal-load" combined with "compile during
load." There I can't help you.
