Greetings!  I think you are looking for the autoload functionality
here.  Checkout lsp/gcl_auto_new.lsp if interested.

Take care,

Which obviously does not work as Tim explained. src/interp/cfuns.lisp
references 'findString' (defined in src/lib/cfuns-c.c) but nothing
in the original GCL image needs it.  
It is odd that we cannot tell GCL "hey, here is an archive for you to
look in, in case I later load objects that need some symbols you cannot
find right now."
