[asdf-devel] Remaining issue with monofasl output - systems with no :components fail

Oops, it looks like I didn't re-test the "workaround" case. That is, a
system with some :depends-on but no :components.

Such systems now fail to build either 'asdf:fasl-op or

The 'asdf:fasl-op gives the "WTF -- no input files?"

Of course there are no input files -- there are no :components. So maybe
the WTF error is correct behavior in the case of 'asdf:fasl-op. But in case
of 'asdf:monolithic-fasl-op, I think the correct behavior should simply be
to omit the "empty" fasl, which is apparently what it had been doing

This can be replicated with for example the current master of gendl. It's
allowed for a defsystem to have only :depends-on and no :components, isn't

My Best,
