I strongly suspect the above error is a consequence of a security
policy (not something to do with actual memory use). On my system,
echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/exec-shield
(executed as superuser) quiets the error, but other systems
may require something else. Searching comp.lang.lisp or the
sbcl-devel archives might find some other ideas.
