it looks like the code that CFFI uses to push cffi-features:xxx
symbols into *features* is based on some old logic.  right now
cffi-features:darwin only gets pushed if :darwinppc-target is

i changed the offending line in src/cffi-openmcl.lisp to
           #+darwin-target     cffi-features:darwin

and cl+ssl loaded up without needing to push anything myself.
