The generous usage of abort() in these modules makes them unusable for CLISP.
While I understand your reasons for using abort() instead of returning
an error code,
I do not think it is right for CLISP to die without a useful message.
I urge you to avoid abort in favor of returning an error code and
document that aborting on certain errors is the right behavior.
