I tried to build the CFFI test suite and ran into a few things:
- FF-CALL doesn't seem to work unless compiled. It looks like there's
a PPC LAP function %FF-CALL that doesn't exist on X86-64?
? (external-call "abs" :int -1 :int)
> Error: Undefined function %FF-CALL called with arguments (5864064068465 :SIGNED-FULLWORD -1 :SIGNED-FULLWORD) .

- When compiled, FF-CALL hits an error with :LONG arguments in some
? (compile nil (lambda (x) (external-call "labs" :long x :void)))

Also, I was able to get SLIME up and running, but the debugger doesn't
work---I assume this is also related to backtracing:
;; in slime repl

IIRC the Slime debugger support in OpenMCL does all sorts of unsavory
internals-poking---it would be nice to have a documented interface for
programmatically getting backtrace information.
