Bug#665896: cmucl: Compiler gives incorrect error if T clause in case construct is not last one

Package: cmucl
Version: 20c-2
Severity: normal

I would report this to the cmucl bug tracking system at
http://trac.common-lisp.net/cmucl/report but I could not figure out
how to create an account. If you can tell me, I'll create a bug report
there. See the related bug report

CMUCL does give an error, but I believe the error message is
incorrect. It says

; Error in function LISP::CASE-BODY:
;    T and OTHERWISE may not be used as key designators for CASE

But it can, it just needs to be the last clause.

BTW, all the stuff using clc: is out of date and should be
