It appears that there are two ways to build maxima: the maxima-build.lisp way and the makefile way.  If you use the makefile way, it may be the case that the code in maxima-build.lisp is not used.

In src/Makefile, we see this rule:

	$(EXECUTEOPENMCL) '(progn (require :defsystem)  $(DEFSYSTEMCOMPILE) (ccl::quit))' && \
	$(EXECUTEOPENMCL) '(progn (require :defsystem) $(DEFSYSTEMLOAD) (ccl:save-application "binary-openmcl/maxima.image") (ccl::quit))'

I assume that if one made that look like save-application form in maxima-dump that it would work.  (Well, probably in src/Makefile.in, but you get the idea, I hope.)
