You can put the defindent in the source file, e.g.

(eval-when (:compile-toplevel :execute :load-toplevel)
   (hemlock-interface:defindent ...))

If you care about being able to compile and/or load the file into a 
bare command line lisp, you'd want to wrap that in something that 
does nothing if hemlock is not present.
