Ouch.  Somewhere a file path isn't being quoted properly, and the shell is 
splitting "c:/Program Files/asdf/alexandria/package.fas" into "c:/Program" 
and "Files/asdf/alexandria/package.fas".

Has this asdf install ever worked with ecl?  Either way, a simple 
workaround is to move "c:/Program Files/asdf" to "c:/asdf".

P.S.  I hate spaces in file/directory names...
