For ABCL, you should be update to working CFFI and Hunchentoot for 
December 2012 Quicklisp fairly easily, the necessary patches for 
abcl-1.1.0 have already been commited to the respective repositories.

[cffi]: https://github.com/easye/cffi/commits/master
[hunchentoot]: https://github.com/easye/hunchentoot/commits/master

For CLOSER-MOP, everything reported has been fixed so that abcl-1.1.0 
works well, but the maintainer has expressed the desire for a released 
version of ABCL before the source is patched.  That condition was met on 
December 7. 2012 but the maintainer has been busy with moving homes, and 
then catching up from moving. So, unless there is some fancy footwork 
between you and Pascal, and/or you patch CLOSER-MOP further than its 
repository (probably a bad idea in general), this will have to wait 
until 2013, or a supplemental December 2012 Quicklisp.

Note that the [bug affecting 
com.informatimago.common-lisp.cesarum][#274] has not (unfortunately) 
been addressed in ABCL-1.1.0.
