I recently pointed this (the with-cast-pointer thing) out to KMR. It's 
a no-op for allegro and openmcl as, I think, it should be, but then 
right below it there's a #+openmcl defun that overwrites the working 
(no-op) version and throws the error. Should be easy to fix, but KMR 
has also been trying to get me to avoid using it in the first place as, 
apparently, it's not just a no-op but a hairy, expensive operation 
under SBCL.
