Confusing error message for misplaced DECLARE

Reported by: hans Owned by: gz

Compiling a file with this contents:

    (declare (ignore foo)))

yields a confusing error message

Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.2-r9226-RC1  (LinuxX8664)!
? (compile-file "foo.lisp")
;Compiler warnings for "/home/hans/profiler/foo.lisp" :
;   In an anonymous lambda form: DECLARE not expected in (DECLARE (IGNORE FOO))
> Error: No MAKE-LOAD-FORM method is defined for #<CCL::SIMPLE-PROGRAM-ERROR #x

The "DECLARE not expected" is clear, but the MAKE-LOAD-FORM thing is really confusing. It seems as if the compiler continues when it can't.
