You sometimes (as is currently the case) need to use a more recent image
to compile bleeding-edge sources.  (Hey! This is documented, see section of:



I think that the most recent "testing" image will compile the bleeding-
edge sources with fewer warnings than the release (0.14.2-p1).  The
FASL version change happened between 0.14.1 and 0.14.2; trying to compile
post-0.14.2 sources with an 0.14.1-p1 image will lead to lots of confusion
about what FASL version is current (as you saw.)
