[asdf-devel] asdf and windows vs unix on abcl

ABCL is special in that it can run on either Windows or Unix.

The problem is that ASDF 2.017 determines which of Windows or Unix at
compile-time, which causes confusion when ABCL's builtin ASDF is
compiled on Windows and used on Unix or vice-versa. And I can tell
your binary was definitely produced on Windows.

(I found this issue while testing cl-launch. I also noticed that you
fixed your ext:*command-line-argument-list* albeit in a necessarily
incompatible way.)

I suppose the solution is that the test of unixness vs windowsness
should happen at runtime. Crazy.
