Hi

I am trying to build Maxima which uses defsystem.lisp.

I have tried ECL 8.12.0 and ECL 9.4.1 and both give the same error: -

> (compile-file-pathname "foo.lsp")
Filesystem error with pathname #P"SYS:cmp.NEWEST".
Either
 1) the file does not exist, or
 2) we are not allow to access the file, or
 3) the pathname points to a broken symbolic link.
Broken at SI:BYTECODES.No restarts available.
Broken at SI:BYTECODES.


On SBCL I get the following: -

0] (compile-file-pathname "foo.lisp")

#P"C:\\Documents and Settings\\blair sutton\\foo.fasl"

I am running Windows XP (5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600) and built both ECLs using MSVC 2008.

Is this a bug and are there any know workarounds?

Thanks
Blair
