fishlips cannot be linked because the compiler found two definitions for the function, you'll see:If optimized compilation is on and the compiler finds a condition that forbids a certain level of optimization, it issues a warning message. For example, if the function
;*** WARNING: Cannot LINK fishlips;
Two DEFUNs found.

Right-click on a warning message to open a shortcut menu. In addition to displaying symbol commands, the menu allows you to view the source code associated with the message. Double-click on the highlighted message to show the source code. To browse all source files related to the compiler messages, press F11 repeatedly, or press SHIFT + F11 to return to the first message.
Each line of the previous warning message guides you to a different code segment. For example:
; *** WARNING: Cannot LINK fishlips
shows the function call that could not be linked.
; Two DEFUNs found

; See Another DEFUN
defun found for function fishlips.shows the second
When the compiler works in Safe Optimization mode and finds a problem condition, the warning starts with:
; *** WARNING: Safe: Cannot â€¦
If Safe Optimization is off, but message mode is set to Full report, the same warnings are prefixed by:
; *** WARNING: Dangerous â€¦
If you disable Safe Optimize mode, these problematic conditions result in compiler warnings.
