The error message is a little confusing; there should probably be
a CCL::STREAM-POSITION method on STREAM that complains that the
particular class of stream isn't seekable.

MAKE-FD-STREAM takes a :CLASS argument, which is intended to be an
abstract class from which (based on the :direction and :element-type
arguments) a concrete subclass is derived. This argument defaults
to 'CCL::FD-STREAM; you probably want to pass 'FILE-STREAM here.
(let* ((fd (%open-fd-to-temporary-file)))
The result should be an instance of some subclass of FILE-STREAM,
fully capable of seeking.
