Add backtrace support for XCL. Unhappily, an XCL compiler bug breaks ASDF3:

The return statement in search-for-system-definition goes awry.
XCL is now officially not supported by ASDF3 (ASDF 2 might still work).

** Modify SBCL and other implementations so they provide UIOP
independently from ASDF?
* XCL is no longer supported due to an implementation bug:
the return in search-for-system-definition fails to return from the
(block nil ...) and seems to mistakenly return from
some implicit internal block.
TODO: either get it fixed, or provide a workaround in uiop/common-lisp.
In the meantime, XCL is officially not supported anymore.
XCL also has a bug in make-pathname, and probably other bugs;
it takes a long time for errors to propagate to the REPL —
Maybe O(n^3) behavior or worse in walking the C++ stack?
* GCL is almost working again; but implementation bugs remain.
See November 2013 discussion on gcl-devel
* Some out-of-line configuration mechanism for various options?
i.e. have files that override some variables around compilation of some systems.
