Warning when using LAMBDA-LIST-KEYWORDS in compiled function.

    Why do I get the following warning?  The compiled code appears to run
    OK.  This is in Sun Common Lisp, Development Environment 2.1.1, 9-Dec-87

	> (defun foo () lambda-list-keywords)
	> (compile 'foo)
	;;; Compiling function FOO...
    ->  ;;; Warning: Assuming LAMBDA-LIST-KEYWORDS is special

The problem is that lucid apparently forgot that lambda-list-keywords,
and all other constants and variables defined in common lisp were special.
If you want a workaround, you could do (proclaim '(special lambda-list-keywords))
before the function.

This problem seems to have been fixed in the 29-feb-88 version of 2.1.1
