  I've tried this with the 2018/01 snapshot (and with the source tarball
  unpacked at the same place, i.e. /usr/local/pkg/common-lisp/cmucl/)
  but Slime can't find the source:

File-error in function LISP::FD-OPEN:
   Error opening #P"target:pcl/generic-functions.lisp", No such file or directory.
   [Condition of type KERNEL:SIMPLE-FILE-ERROR]

  Unfortunately, this doesn't work either. SEARCH-TARGET doesn't seem to
  exist (neither as a reader, nor as aSETF function):

CL-USER> (apropos 'search-target)
; No value

BTW, it would also be nice if CMUCL could find its way back to itself
when run from a symlink (I'd like to symlink it to /usr/local/bin/):

Cannot find core file

Resistance is futile. You will be jazzimilated.
