   try:   (declare (ignore-if-unused contained?))

   See MCL Ref p. 643

This may then cause the other Lisps to barf, being a nonstandard declaration.
Some Lisps have an IGNORABLE declaration, some have IGNORE-IF-UNUSED, etc.

How about

  #-:MCL (declare (ignore contained?))

in the original code instead?
