 %SYSTEM-BINARIES%  should be being set in ecl-patches.lisp

Are you pushing :i686 in the Makefile (from 0.99.7)?
# Executed unconditionally!  Dependencies should be done by ECL
	( \
	  echo "(pushnew :i686 *features*)"; \
	  echo ";;(pushnew :debug *features*)"; \
	  echo "(load \"$(MRSDIR)/src/general/loadup\")"; \
	  echo "(si::system (format nil \"cd ~a; find -type f -exec rm {}
\;\" (get-binaries-dir \"mrs\")))"; \
	  echo "(setq lib-dir (make-pathname :directory '(:relative)))"; \
	  echo "(compile-system \"mrs\" :force t)"; \
	) | $(ECL)

Or has this perhaps changed?
