The build error was caused by this patch (repository is git://sbcl.boinkor.net/clisp):

DIRECTORY signals correctable errors on bad pathnames [1st draft]

This is my proposed patch:

I assume that a directory encoding error cannot occur with CLISP built for 8-bit characters since such builds do not implement character encodings. Reference:

    thank you for your bug report.
    the bug has been fixed in the CVS tree.
    you can either wait for the next release (recommended)
    or check out the current CVS tree (see http://clisp.cons.org\)
    and build CLISP from the sources (be advised that between
    releases the CVS tree is very unstable and may not even build
    on your platform).
