I dropped in ASDF 3.1.2 from the release tarball in the MKCL 1.1.9
source tree as a direct replacement of the currently bundled ASDF.
It compiled fine. The whole MKCL build completes and installs as usual.
The thus resulting ASDF 3.1.2 reports all tests are good when
'make test l=mkcl" is run, as well as with 'make test-upgrade l=mkcl'.

But when I come to try an upgrade from 3.1.2 to syntax-control
branch I then get a crash.  Here is attached the transcript of what
is produced at the repl.

The error message basically says that 'build/asdf.lisp' cannot be found.
And in fact it is missing (it used to be produced properly by
If I drop to a shell prompt and do make build/asdf.lisp and try the
same upgrade again then it completes properly. So is there something
broken now with the ASDF bundle 'concatenate' ops?

a harmless annoyance. It also just reminds me that there is still some
reality of thread programming I have come to terms with.  It is the very
low frequency
combined with clear randomness that bothers me. I just have get back to it
and silence this nagger for good...

Thanks again.
