Aside from getting the pathname wrong, some of this code seems
to call CL:RENAME-FILE with an :IF-EXISTS keyword argument.
CL:RENAME-FILE isn't really supposed to take any keyword arguments.
If the lower-level function that actually does the renaming complains
that the output file already exists, it'd make sense if
(rename-file file new-name :if-exists :overwrite)
found some way to overwrite the existing file.
