Let's fix the debugger, and native compilation, not to load cl-lib.

It's not so bad if you load a specialized package that serves your code
and it uses cl-lib.  But the debugger can be loaded to debug anything,
even programs you have nothing to do with.  It's rude for the debugger
to load cl-lib.

Likewise for native compilation.  You might recompile anything.
