Bug#494404: patch + comments on cl-geodesics

cl-geodesics compiles for me with the attached patch.

One of the problems is that the ASDF system definition has unbalanced
parentheses. This makes it impossible to load/use this package. The
version in sarge and etch has the same bug, so it doesn't look like
anybody has used cl-geodesics in the past several years. It should
probably be removed rather than fixed.

OTOH, if you decide to keep it, there are a few other problems I

- utilities.lisp doesn't have an IN-PACKAGE form, so it gets loaded in
whatever random package happens to be active.

systems each define the same symbols in the GEODESICS package, so they
can't be loaded simultaneously. But that's exactly what the GEODESICS
system does. I think each of the GD-* systems needs to live in a
separate package?
