    STILL wrong! Now splicing macros at top level always return NIL.
    That is ~(a) => nil at top level.
    Also LISPT users are going to have a hard time since $DEV5K is
    no longer there for GETDDTSYM to find. (Perhaps this is in some
    package LISPT uses (HUMBLE ?) I didn't have the patience to find out.)

LISPT PATCH patches $DEV5K.  In 1860, $DEV5K has been renamed $DEVBUF, which
is a somewhat superior name.  I have patched LISP to also have the symbol
$DEV5K for this location.  LISPT PATCH seems to work properly under the
cursory examination I gave it.  However, somebody should probably check it
out a bit more to be sure, and change it to use the symbol $DEVBUF instead
by the next LISP version.
