After some private emails, it turns out that the problem is that
there was another slur starting before the appoggiatura and ending
after it. Since LilyPond only allows for one simultaneous slur at
a time (since that's the only thing that makes sense musically in
most cases), appoggiatura slur wasn't printed.
The following small example illustrates the problem,
\version "2.5.16"
\relative c' \new Voice {
\partial 4
fis ( \appoggiatura {b16[ a]} <g cis,>8. ) fis16 g4 }

The easiest solution is to typeset the long slur using a
phrasing slur:

 \relative c' \new Voice {
\partial 4
fis4 \( \appoggiatura {b16[ a]} <g cis,>8 \) fis16 g4 }

This problem has been discussed earlier, see for example
and I don't find the current implementation fully satisfactory.
If the consensus is that two slurs cannot appear simultaneously, then
the appoggiatura "slur" should not count as an ordinary slur but as
something else.

Also, the fact that you cannot have simultaneous slurs is not mentioned
in the documentation.

It certainly works over here. Have you tried if you can print any
slurs at all, for example with
\version "2.5.16"
\relative c' {c ( d e f )}

If that fails, it indicates some PostScript related problem.
Have you checked both the .ps and .pdf output?

using 2.5.16, Mac OS through Fink

 \appoggiatura {b16[ a]} <g cs,>8

does not provide a slur as shown in the documentation. Nor have I been able to force a slur.
