in-package problems

	I am having some problems with the IN-PACKAGE 
macro in MCL2.0b1.  IN the old version (Mac. Allegro 
1.3.2) is is simple to use IN-PACKAGE with a variable 
name, however this appears no longer to be possible.

For example

(setf *name* Rpackage-nameS)
(make-package *name*)  ;; this bit works fine

(in-package *name*)

;;;this then returns

> Error: There is no package named "*NAME*" .
> While executing: CCL::SET-PACKAGE

Am I doing something silly, if not how can I get around 
this problem and pass package names as variable?
Thanks for any help
