(defconstant ccl::$v_istruct 44)
Ecch. This constant shouldn't be getting referenced in the first place;
as long as it is, it should be defined ...
(Actually, it -is- defined in "library;lispequ". Until a fairly late
alpha release, we had been including that file in the distributed image &
hadn't noticed that some macros refer to things which are only defined there.)
