This is what I do when trying to debug these sort of problems.

Build a compiler in one directory in the grade asm_fast.gc.decldebug,
this will allow you to debug what is going on.  To do this add the
following line to Mmake.params (you will need to create the file in
the root directory of the check-out)

The check-out a fresh compiler.
Create a file called Mmake.params, in this file add at least the line

then use
mmake library

and the build process should build the library in the il grade.
