Thanks, that helped to get defsystem running somehow[1].  I have run now in
the problem that my test suite needs HANDLER-BIND.  Will this be in 2.7.0?
Maybe I really should wait with further porting efforts until that version
is released.

Thanks, Nicolas.

[1] Your defsystem-file does not compile with my gcl-2.6.3.  I then used
only part of the patches from your file with the defsystem.lisp from CLOCC.
