Great, thanks!

Are you saying that 'compile-bundle' would discard the global variable?

I'm still rather new to Common Lisp so let me know if I get it right:

- Compiling a bundle only compiles the target files, it discards the other
  global values.

- Saving an image keeps everything, including global variables.

Sorry, you understood right at first, I wanted to write

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  (define-public sbcl-cl-sqlite
    #:cffi-packages (list ,sqlite ,foo...)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Hmm, I'm not sure I understand what you mean.  Could you provide an example?
