Weird. It's a test I just added to test the new package-system functionality.
It's working for me on all platforms on Linux.
Do you have a backtrace for asdf-pathname-test on CCL and/or SBCL?

I added some code in test-sysdef-asdf that invokes run-program with
:directory to check that the Makefile and asdf.asd are in sync with
respect to the ordered list of files in asdf (and same in uiop).
Apparently, there was a bug in UIOP's run-program :directory argument
on implementations that don't have a native run-program and revert to
system(), that I just fixed, and should fix test-sysdef-asdf on clisp
and ecl. I'm glad we found it that before release. Sorry for the bug,
and for not testing this combination myself.

What is the clisp failure in asdf-pathname-test.script?

Happy new year!
