On a happier note, both (Home)brew and Ubuntu have newish versions of
clisp which, AFAICT, pass all the ASDF tests. Yay!

The workaround is to use the install-asdf.lisp script to overwrite
CMUCL's builtin ASDF with a newer one. — Although I'm not sure
the script will work if ASDF can't upgrade itself.

I'm getting a failure of the ASDF upgrade tests on CMUCL since the
UIOP dependencies mod:
Upgrading ASDF from version 3.1.7 to version 126.96.36.199
TEST ABORTED: Error while trying to load definition for system
test-asdf from pathname
recognize component type :MODULE
This looks like the key bit of the backtrace:
11: ("LAMBDA (.PV-CELL. .NEXT-METHOD-CALL. O S)"
12: (SIGNAL #<ASDF/SESSION:FORMATTED-SYSTEM-DEFINITION-ERROR
:FORMAT-CONTROL "don't recognize component type ~S"
14: (ASDF/SESSION:SYSDEF-ERROR "don't recognize component type ~S"
(:MODULE "test-asdf" :PATHNAME NIL)
#<Stream for file
TBH, I'm inclined to regard 3.1.7 as so old that I don't have to
think about it, but I'm open to contradiction. If I don't hear any,
I'll prune that from the set of origin versions to test for upgrades,
and move on.
