I haven't really thought about this properly, but why not just:

(defun sysdef-central-registry-search (system)
  (let ((name (coerce-name system)))
    (block nil
      (dolist (dir *central-registry*)
        (let* ((defaults (probe-file (eval dir)))
               (file (when defaults
                        :defaults defaults :version :newest
                        :name name :type "asd" :case :local))))
          (when (and file (probe-file file))
            (return file)))))))

That way, as long as the Lisp and OS agree that the pathname in
*CENTRAL-REGISTRY* more or less denotes a directory everything should
just work -- assuming that in sane environments (probe-file
"/foo/bar") returns something with (:absolute "foo" "bar") in the
directory component as long as it actually is a directory.
