[armedbear-devel] [asdf-devel] Patches for ABCL against asdf-1.641

ASDF-Binary-Locations has been obsoleted and replaced by the more
easily configurable ASDF-Output-Translations, which is now built into
ASDF itself.

ASDF 1.660 also includes some compatibility mode with ABL, if for some
reason you love the old ABL way.

I hope ABCL has fixed its merge-pathnames woes.
