After now rereading my message, I want to mention that I don't think
that :UNIX should be reported instead of :NETBSD however, I think that
having a more descriptive name like :NETBSD is useful.  Perhaps
that :UNIX or :POSIX should also be exported in the case of
unix/linux/bsd systems, though, and ASDF could keep relying on :POSIX
or :UNIX ...

It's not a very recent SBCL that I have, but it appears on NetBSD to
provide: :UNIX :BSD :NETBSD :ELF, other than a bunch of
OS-PROVIDES-<foo>.  As for x86-64, SBCL provides :X86-64 while ECL
provides :X86_64.

CLISP provides very little system-specific *features*, but also
provides :UNIX (:WORD-SIZE=64 :PC386 :UNIX).
