Actually, [Dave Cooper's blog post][1] was enough for me to understand
what is going on.  Thanks Dave!

One difference for the current ASDF is that to view where the monolithic
bundle gets written, one has to use the MONOLITHIC-COMPILE-BUNDLE-OP as

    (asdf:output-files 'asdf:monolithic-compile-bundle-op :cl-ppcre)

I would suggest that ASDF:BUNDLE-SYSTEM emit this sort of information as

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