:Binprt sys;ts macsym and :binprt sys2;ts emacs report Checksum errors.
Is that really true? Or does that mean something else?
As I understand the checksum algorithm it is really true. In fact I
believe that I once determined that whenever a lisp is dumped the
indirect symbol table block at the end of the file is given a bogus
checksum. I never bothered to report this to bug-lisp (until now)
because it seemed more reasonable to fix binprt to simply report the
error (rather than crapping out, as it used to do). I suppose the
emacs dumper has the same problem.

Kindly verify :info binprt.
Seems correct to me.
