[Maxima] More issues with today's cvs-head

I flamed the copyright symbol and maxima built/installed as in the past
(make check worked too); however, when I try to run a script under
imaxima, e.g., as

emacs
A-X imaxima

I get:

Maxima encountered a Lisp error:

 
SYSTEM::SET-STREAM-EXTERNAL-FORMAT on #<IO TWO-WAY-STREAM
  #<INPUT UNBUFFERED FILE-STREAM CHARACTER #P"/dev/fd/0" @1>
  #<OUTPUT UNBUFFERED FILE-STREAM CHARACTER #P"/dev/fd/1">> is illegal

Automatically continuing.
To reenable the Lisp debugger set *debugger-hook* to nil.

*** - THROW: there is no CATCHer for tag RETURN-FROM-DEBUGGER
Break 1 [1]>
block(load(("/usr/local/share/maxima/current/emacs/imaxima.lisp")),
linenum:0)$

*** - SYSTEM::READ-EVAL-PRINT: variable BLOCK has no value
The following restarts are available:
USE-VALUE      :R1      Input a value to be used instead of BLOCK.
STORE-VALUE    :R2      Input a new value for BLOCK.
ABORT          :R3      Abort debug loop
Break 2 [2]> 

I get the same behavior with the imaxima that is in the cvs repository
as well as with the just-announced 1.0rc1.

Finally, note that the current directory is a soft link to 5.17post/.
