(Sorry for the late answer.) SBCL ships with a periodically updated
upstream ASDF.

That is, it might not be the latest bleeding-edge one for each
release, but the intention is that the one SBCL comes with contains no
modifications. Historically this has not always been true, I think,
but it has been the intention.

If cleaning ASDF of the SBCL-contrib-releated stuff is done, then
possibly this will change -- but even in that case we would prefer to
keep the changes minimal.
