Vlexical_binding is sometimes NULL

The `Vlexical_binding' is sometimes NULL in a context where it can be
accessed from Lisp code. For example, if I run `temacs -Q' (non-dumped
Emacs) and evaluate `lexical-binding' in the scratch buffer, it
evaluates to zero (NULL interpreted as a fixnum).

This doesn't cause any obvious problems right now, but it may if the
Lisp object representation changes; in Guile-Emacs it can cause
segfaults, for example. For now I've fixed it with the trivial patch
below, but would it be useful to add an initial-value argument to
DEFVAR_LISP to prevent this kind of problem in the future?
