Works for me, at least with Allegro 9.0:

make u l=allegro ASDF_UPGRADE_TEST_TAGS=1.85
make u l=allegromodern ASDF_UPGRADE_TEST_TAGS=1.85

I can't try allegro 8.2, because my license has expired, and Franz
only offers one until January 31st 2013, and I don't feel like
cheating on the system date:

Is it a case of confusion whereby we changed the way the
implementation identifier is computed, and asdf creates the fasl in
one directory but somehow looks for it in another?

What is the command that makes it fail, already?
