Greetings!  The pathology was do to the failure in the clc script,
causing the clc image to be saved in an error state.
unregister.... produces a working image, and a replacement clc
installation works fine.  The nickname c-l-c went to clc.

But now I have the following -- maybe you can suggest a fix:

GCL_ANSI=t gclcvs -eval '(asdf:load-system :fare-utils)'
GCL (GNU Common Lisp)  2.7.0 ANSI    Apr  9 2010 18:42:13

Use (help) to get some basic information on how to use GCL.

Take care,
