Quicklisp systems are located via a function appended to the end of
this variable with DEFPARAMETER, so every time asdf.lisp is loaded, the
value is set to ASDF's initial value. It seems to me that ASDF should
use DEFVAR instead.

You can restore the Quicklisp ASDF system search configuration by
calling (ql:setup).
