Well, if you are comfortable cutting that macro line out of your copy of
ASDF, maybe you could tweak that line of code so that it prints the
values of those variables?
I'm wondering if this is a bug in SBCL instead of ASDF. I can replicate
your result: on SBCL, tracing `COMPILE-FILE` does not print anything.
*But* when I made this modification:
(defun call-with-muffled-conditions (thunk conditions)
"calls the THUNK in a context where the CONDITIONS are muffled"
(handler-bind ((t #'(lambda (c) (when (match-any-condition-p c
(format t "~&MUFFLING CONDITION
... then I **did** see output from tracing `COMPILE-FILE`.
Also, on *neither* Allegro *nor* (my antique copy of) Clozure can I
replicate this issue.
Pending new evidence, I think this is for the SBCL folks to deal with...
Is there any chance that SBCL might have trouble tracing calls inside
`APPLY`? I can't see why this macro would make any difference, now that
I see that it's not trying to muffle anything.

the moment they are all nil:

That will help us figure out why you are seeing this effect.

I don't know enough about ASDF to know if I'm running with

and removing the with-muffled-compiler-conditions form (which
itself is inside a with-saved-deferred-warnings form) makes the
trace output reappear. I could well be overestimating of that
particular form, but somehow the TRACE output is being swallowed
unless that form is removed.

Dear ASDF folks,
I was trying to trace calls to compile-file today and
that the with-muffled-compiler-conditions form in
uiop:compile-file* muffles trace output. Is there anyway to
make it not do that?
I think you are overestimating the effect of this form. *UNLESS*
you are running with deferred warnings, this will only muffle
By default, those are bound to |NIL|, so this shouldn't be
causing your problem.
