I sometimes run into this with CMUCL "scripts" or when compiling
functions that reference functions compiled separately in other files.
My usual solution to shut up CMUCL is to simply declare the names
as otherwise-unspecified functions, e.g.:

    ;;; Shut up fwd-ref warnings:
    (declaim (ftype function mmap r8 r16 r32 w8 w16 w32 d32 dump32
			     memcpy memcmp spin-until-change))
