I think you missed your patching of "build-abcl.lisp" with a top-level 
call to BUILD-ABCL (which you mention in your patch of README) right?

I'm a little reluctant to patch 'build-abcl.lisp' in this way, as it 
mutates the behavior of the "BUILD-ABCL" ASDF definition contained in 
"abcl.asd" to always begin executing the build process at 'ASDF:LOAD-OP 
time.  Couldn't we either a) evaluate a (BUILD-ABCL) form after the load 
or b) create another Lisp file (like "do-build-abcl.lisp") that loads 
"build-abcl.lisp" and then evaluates the top-level load?

"A screaming comes across the sky.  It has happened before, but there
is nothing to compare to it now."
