LOAD-OP :FORCE T propagates to depended-on systems -- meaning they
will be recompiled as well.
This is nasty when depending on an SBCL contributed module or anything
else likely to be installed in directory with no write-permissions for
The easiest way to deal with this would be to add
;; Prevent :FORCE T from trying to recompile contribs.
(defclass sb-contrib-system (system) ())
(defmethod traverse :before ((o compile-op) (c sb-contrib-system))
(when (operation-forced o)
(warn "Ignoring :FORCE T for COMPILE-OP of SBCL contributed
(setf (operation-forced o) nil)))
under #+sbcl in asdf.lisp, and make SBCL defsystems use :class
However, presumably there are other cases where systems may be
installed without write-permissions, so recompilation is not going to
Perhaps a better solution would be to export OPERATION-FORCED and
TRAVERSE, so that this could be deal with where-ever is needed --
especially in local initialization files for systems installed in
read-only locations. The SBCL solution would look about the same -- it
just would not reside inside asdf.lisp.
Am I on the wrong track?
