[Openmcl-devel] Specifying interface db file locations

Have hunted around some more with this. Doing 
(translate-logical-pathname "ccl:darwin-headers;") gives 
#P"/darwin-headers/". So by sticking the headers in the root directory, 
the lisp image is now able to find them.

However, I'd still rather only have one location for all the interface 
files so I consider this a temporary workaround only...
