Are you getting that error on the same test (`test-encodings.script`), or is it in a different test script?

It would be interesting if it's on the same test, because I am *not* seeing this error, and maybe it's causing the segmentation fault. Would you post the context of the error?

Well, CLISP is known for its deterministic but chaotic segfaults (i.e.
sensitive to the slightest perturbation in input), probably due to
some GC bug somewhere, which would explain your failure.

Interestingly, I experience a different failure using GNU CLISP
2.49.60+ (2017-06-25) on NixOS 18.09.1228.a4c4cbb613c, I instead get:
POSIX:COPY-FILE: illegal keyword/value pair :METHOD, :RENAME in argument list.
The allowed keywords are NIL

This suggests that uiop/filesystem:rename-file-overwriting-target has
bitrotten on the latest CLISP. Any volunteer to fix that in a
backward-compatible way? I'll pass.

The latest tweak was followed by a Jenkins (linux) test failure for clisp on test-encodings.script, with a segmentation fault.

I cannot reliably replicate this, and I don't see any reason to assume that this is ASDF's fault, rather than clisp's.

I'm not sure that there is anything I can do about this, but thought I would ask for suggestions:
