silly (?) question about mixed definitions and packages

When compiling and loading the following file (a set of stubs,
essentially, to get some other stuff to compile without actually having
another whole system available), I am getting the following error:
Warning: Function CLOSE, being redefined by file TRI:MOM;BIG-MOM;DATAVAULT-SIMULATOR-HACK,
was previously defined by file SYS:CLCP;IOFNS. OK? (Y, P, or N) Proceed.
(defun cmfs::close (&rest ignore))
How did you create the package CMFS? It looks like it is inheriting the
CLOSE symbol from the COMMON-LISP package. The CMFS package is not
supposed to :USE any other packages, since it has symbols like this that
would conflict. It should be created with
(make-package 'cmfs :use nil)
If you don't specify :USE NIL, it defaults to :USE '(COMMON-LISP).
Of course if he does this then he'll have to get rid of the in-package 'cmfs,
since he won't get the definition of lisp:defun after the in-package.
