[Openmcl-devel] The MAX-1-BIT-CONSTANT-INDEX error

Mea culpa, most likely.  (This has nothing to do with constant redefinition;
it does have to do with the volatility of the trunk.)

Changes to the trunk between r13418 and r13422 break the two-arg cases
of LOGIOR and LOGAND when both operands are bignums on 64-bit platforms.
There's some incidental use of the affected functions in the compiler
and fasloader (and elsewhere), and these bugs can lead to symptoms like
those that Sudhir reports below.

IIRC, the PPC64 sources were actually OK as of r13422 and the x8664
seems to OK as of r13423.

If you had the misfortune to have updated and tried to rebuild the
trunk lisp in the last day or so and run into this sort of thing, it
should work to do:

$ cd ccl
$ svn update            ; to at least r13422
$ svn revert lx86cl64.image  ; or whatever 64-bit image
$ ccl64
? (rebuild-ccl :full t)

Using a slightly old image to compile new sources means that you'll
see the last several weeks' worth of business-as-usual warnings and
at least this one CERROR.

(If you use the trunk and were up-to-date as of before r13418, there's
no need to revert the image in that case.)
