This patch has now been applied to the CFFI git repository [1] and should
hopefully appear in the next official QUICKLISP distribution. I have been
using the patch for quite some time with ECL and SBCL on OSX and have not
encountered any issues when compiling quicklisp versions of IOLIB and
OSICAT. The patch does highlight a minor issue with the current stable
version of ASDF where ASDF sometimes recompiles systems that have not
changed. This inconvenience has already been solved [2] and will be
introduced in to ECL's ASDF when the next ECL-ASDF synchronisation occurs.
I do not know when this will occur as this decision is made by other people.
