[asdf-devel] Fwd: can't compile-file then load asdf.lisp

Apparently, it is incorrect to try to update ASDF from a system where
an older version of ASDF has already been loaded from which some
DEFUNs (e.g. SYSTEM-SOURCE-FILE) have since converted to DEFGENERICs.
This means that if you have an old clisp from debian and try to use
the newer ASDF, you're out of luck.
As a remedy, could we prepend the defpackage in asdf.lisp with the following?
(eval-when (:compile-toplevel :load-toplevel)
(let ((package (find-package '#:asdf)))
(when package (delete-package package))))

this means that you have defined a regular function (with DEFUN) and now are
trying to redefine it with DEFGENERIC.
since asdf.lisp does not do that, you, apparently, have this function defined
