When you (setq |a| (package-name *package*)), |a| lives in the initial
package and is not accessible in boottran when you invoke (in-package
'boottran) ... (in-package |a|)

Indeed it does when the .lisp is loaded at a )fin lisp prompt.  I
think the fact that it does not show up in the normal make procedure
might mean that other such potential bugs are being masked, maybe even
the ones related to the infinite recursion.  Can you shed light on why
this did not cause the build to fail?

Also, in my build, I'm getting a lot of 

***** Domain ? already {present,defined, can't really remember} ****** 

in the algebra portion.  Do you see this?  Sounds relevant.

Take care,
