No, the C ABI hasn't changed.

The buildlog says:

make[2]: Entering directory /build/buildd/clisp-2.30/debian/build/avcall'
./minitests > minitests.out
uniq -u < minitests.out > minitests.output.mips-pc-linux-gnu
test '!' -s minitests.output.mips-pc-linux-gnu
make[2]: *** [check] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory /build/buildd/clisp-2.30/debian/build/avcall'
make[1]: *** [avcall.h] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory /build/buildd/clisp-2.30/debian/build'
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 2

which isn't particulary enlightening. What is minitests supposed to output?
