No, I have a package.lisp file which is a component of the system which
defines all the packages.

And I would also point out that none of the packages from libraries I am
importing appear either.

Here is a (somewhat) self-contained example which breaks for me:

Start from the example in /ecl/examples/asdf/. Modify the files as follows:
Add this to the top of file1.lisp:
(defpackage :test (:use :cl) (:export :test-function))
(in-package :test)
And this to the top of file2.lisp:
(in-package :test)

Now with just these changes, the example still works fine for me. But say I
modify the example.asd by adding the following to the end of the defsystem
    :depends-on (:closer-mop)

Now when I build with asdf:make-build, I get the following error:

Do you observe these results on your end? Am I doing something wrong in this
