What about:

     (merge-pathnames app-pathname (make-pathname :name app))
     :toplevel-function (lambda ()
                                (funcall (find-symbol (string-upcase initfn)
                                                      (string-upcase app)))
                                (ccl:quit 0))
                            (error (err)
                              ;; put it back if you perfer :quit over :quit-quietly
                              ;; (format *error-output "~&~A~%" err)
                              (ccl:quit 1))))
     :mode #o644
     :prepend-kernel t)
