It is unclear to me how to reproduce your problem.  You mention “the same
script run run by CCL” but I see no script, as you show an invocation of abcl
without any arguments.  Is the script you refer to the contents of “~/.abclrc”?
If so, can you you please provide the contents of the file as well as a little
instructions on how to set things up?

Naively, I expect that your problems will be solved by using ASDF 3.1.4 which
is in the abcl-1.4.0-dev version of ABCL available at the svn HEAD.

I did some poking around loading the Quicklisp versions of the
"com.informatimago.common-lisp.tools.pathname" and
"com.informatimago.common-lisp.graphviz” packages on both abcl 1.3.1 and HEAD
without encountering problems.  

Erik has [filed a ticket][1] to track this problem.
