This is strange. 'ht:Pack' (in the 'ht' library) is part of the PicoLisp core. How did you install it? Along the lines of the INSTALL file, or from a Debian-Derivate?
I build the emu version along the lines of your INSTALL file. With local installation mode on a 32-bit ubuntu 12.04. It worked on first try.
