[Openmcl-devel] (require :cocoa) fails with ccl 1.2rc1 in write-protected directory

I installed ccl under /usr/local/lib/ccl, with the appropriate shell
script in /usr/local/bin.  Unfortunately, ccl sometimes wants to
reside in a directory writable by the current user:

~$ ccl64
Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.2-r9226-RC1  (DarwinX8664)!
? (require :cocoa)
> Error: Can't create directory "/usr/local/lib/ccl/temp bundle.app/".
> While executing: ENSURE-DIRECTORIES-EXIST, in process listener(1).
> Type :POP to abort, :R for a list of available restarts.
> Type :? for other options.
1 > 

I'll work around that for now by installing below my home directory,
adding to $PATH, etc., but I'd sure love to have something like a
ccl-tmp: logical host pointing to /tmp that would be used by
create-ide-bundle.  I'm also satisfied, of course, with the usual
one-line answer that points out how it'll all work if I don't do
$mistake.  :-)
