I load it and leave it at default settings. It puts subdirectories
where my asd files are.

The idea is to do as little special-case packaging as possible I want
to have a loaded project and say: (ship-it)

To package I plan to unpack all jars used by my system into a single
directory, add one more directory for my source, copy all source
directories to there (except omitting any dynamic jars also placed
there), modify system.lisp to load all my systems (disabling dynamic
jar loading), and have some code that interprets the command line
arguments to do stuff.

Here's the start of the code for managing the jars.

The problem occurred when I tried to load the compiled system code so prepared.
