I encountered the same problem when I used the Defsystem facility
developed by Mark Kantrowitz (see (member ':mk-defsystem *features*)).
The Defsystem facility redefines the function ccl:require. The new
definition (see the funciton new-require) returns nil even if a module
has been provided. However, the pretty-printer uses the result of require to
check out whether the module PPRINT is available. I changed the definition
of new-require to return t when a module has been provided already.
