For the record, I'm seeing a couple issues with ASDF on Windows.  Some may 
be my doing.

First, I had to disable the shortcut code under Clisp; it doesn't like 
(make-pathname ... :type "asd.lnk").  I have a quick patch for this, but 
there may be room for improvement (e.g. by changing the name to have .asd 
and the type to be .lnk?).

Second, symlinks that are zipped up on linux work when unzipped under 
Vista.  Both probe-file and *load-truename* resolve properly.  Yet people 
still have trouble loading asdf-binary-locations through the symlinks 
(fails to find dev/main.lisp).  Wish I had a Vista box to directly see 
what's going on.
