PROBLEM:
- The batch-related command line options for SBCL don't work
- properly.
- A small part of making them work properly is making sure that
- verbose GC messages end up piped to error output.
- Make sure that when the system dies due to an unhandled error
- in batch mode, the error is printed successfully, whether
- FINISH-OUTPUT or an extra newline or whatever is required.
- Make sure that make.sh dies gracefully when one of the SBCLs

- Actually, the ANSI *DEBUGGER-HOOK* variable might be a better
