Static Compilation Issues

Hey Ava,

are all dependencies specified in drakma? i.e sb-bsd-sockets, uiop and asdf?
If not, please try add them as dependencies of your project. If that doesn't
work then please file an issue with a source code you've used and dump from
the console of what is happening (including commands you issue).

Best regards,
