I do not think it make any sense:

1) 'compile-file' works as specified -- the "only" problem is some
   aspect of specified behaviour are implementation dependent and
   impementation as doing something else compared to what we need
   (and different implementation and doing different something else).

2) We could complain about this implementation dependent behaviour
   but the problem is well-known and such message would be treated
   as an attempt to start a flame war.

3) We could ask how to archive what we want.  Again, there is a
   library (cl-fad), which solves bunch of similar exercises.
   cl-fad does not work on gcl, but it is IMHO unreasonable to
   ask a newsgroup to do a port for us.
