This is a good feature, but it's not required by the ANSI spec.  If
something fails the CLOCC test suite, be sure to actually check the
spec to make sure that what the suite expects is actually required --
in this case, that's not really a problem, because signaling an error
is pretty obviously the right thing to do, but sometimes that suite
requires things that are in no way required by ANSI.

I dont quite agree with you.  Although ANSI standard
defines no exceptional situation for make-array
it also states that the :fill-pointer must be _valid_
fillpointer.  And _valid_ fillpointer is defined
as nonnegative.
