What does (asdf:find-system :abcl) return?  

You need to have the [ANSI-TEST repository cloned locally][ansi-test] as a sibling of where “abcl.asd” is located.  This is noted in the [comments within “abcl.asd”][1], and we could certainly profit for a better message in the signaled condition. 

TODO automate this as part of the things [ABCL-BUILD][abcl-build] can install locally for the user.
