Let's look, shall we ?
? (apropos "FASL-CONCAT")
FASL-CONCATENATE, Def: FUNCTION
CCL::%FASL-CONCATENATE, Def: FUNCTION
Why yes, there is!
I don't remember how its arguments are specified or processed; whenever
I need to use it, I wind up R-ing section 4.10 of TFM.
True Fact: version 1.0 of what became known as MCL was released in 1987;
it didn't have the ability to save or load heap images. The application
(well, the data fork of the application) was just a fairly large (several
hundred Kb!) concatenated FASL file that loaded itself every time the
application was launched.
