  GCL does not purport to conform to ANSI X3.226 Common Lisp, so you will
  find many such problems.  one must judge conformance according to the
  document/standard to which conformance is purported.

  of course.  LAMBDA is just a macro.  this suggested implementation is
  taken directly from the HyperSpec/standard:

(defmacro lambda (&whole form &rest bvl-decls-and-body)
  (declare (ignore bvl-decls-and-body))
