based on the old CMUCL backend, has been made. It has been tested
on a big-endian kernel, and works sufficiently well to be able to
rebuild itself; it has not been tested in little-endian mode.
+ * fixed an inconsistency between gencgc.c and purify.c which made

* fixed bug 120a: The compiler now deals correctly with IFs where
the consequent is the same as the alternative, instead of
misderiving the return type. (thanks to Alexey Dejneka)

* The compiler's handling TYPE-ERRORs which it can prove will
inevitably happen at runtime has been cleaned up and corrected

* fixed bug 181: compiler checks validity of user supplied type
* cleaned up code flushing in optimization: Function calls which
should signal errors for safety purposes (e.g. which ANSI says
should signal errors when their arguments are of incorrect type)
are no longer optimized away.
