Calvin and I have already figured out his problem in private correspondence.
It was private because the comp.lang.lisp.mcl -> info-mcl gateway took
two days to get this message to info-mcl.

The short answer is "ff-load your code, then save-application". The
medium-sized answer is that the short answer won't work if your
ff-loaded code depends on the initial values of static variables which
it modifies, and you run any of the code that modifies such static variables
before you save-application. Contact me if you want a longer answer.
