I have to admit that interference from the process environment was not on
my list of identified threats.
I just committed two lines in my src/build-asdf-contrib.lsp to guard
against that. I hope its enough.
I looked into the source code of ASDF and saw that it read the content of
at least 11 environment variables!
Should I be paranoid and guard also against the 9 nine others beside the
two you mentioned?

Please DO NOT try to include compatibility with older versions of MKCL
before 1.1.9 since that aspect of them is simply a hopeless broken mess
that I can only wish to forget quickly.
