fix for describe.l

Previous postings have correctly identified the problem (which was fixed
long ago in the versions announced today).  The best fix is to change
the (environment-lmlisp) invocation near the beginning of describe.l to
read as follows, then recompile it:

	(environment-lmlisp (compile eval) (files struct flavorm))

The struct and flavorm modules do not need to be around when the
compiled describe code is executed, so omitting load from the eval-when
saves some unnecessary fasl's.  Describe, by the way, is useful even
when flavors and defstructs are not being used.  For instance, it will
report the source module in which a compiled function lives.
