[wfs@nicolas.ma.utexas.edu: Re: eval-when bug]

I received a reply from Bill Schelter about my eval-when question:

From: wfs@nicolas.ma.utexas.edu (Bill Schelter)

Only certain top level package operations get eval'd BEFORE the read of the 
big constant vector.   Because the make-package is hidden in a conditional
it is not getting read before the constant vector is read.   
Putting all package information in a separate file loaded before your other
files, seems the only portable way of getting things to work in all systems.

In akcl if you did

(in-package "ABC")
(in-package "USER")

It would have been ok.
