I'd botched the PPC32 case of the bug that (MAKE-SOCKET) triggered on
PPC64; someone pointed that out, and that should now be fixed in CVS.
Honest.  This time, for sure.

I'll try to enable something that'd conditionally warn about vinsns that're
referenced by the compiler but not defined.  (There should be -some- cases
of this - some things are platform-specific - but it'd be good to know
about this earlier.)

Those look right; thanks.

It might be worth supporting arrays of element type FIXNUM (e.g.,
(SIGNED-BYTE 61)), since there are some leftover typecodes.
Storing/referencing fixnums in arrays of element-type (SIGNED-BYTE 64)
won't cons, but might do some extra (unnecessary) typechecking.
