ok, so I just tried to build a dummy app on the desktop (problem is the same there) with the dependencies listed in your ASDF definitions.
I added :uiop as an additional dependency (both in *.asd and 'dependencies.lisp'), but this still didn't work without adding :asdf.

But after the following hack (in 'make.lisp') I was able to run the app without startup errors:

  :prologue-code '(progn
                    (require :sb-bsd-sockets)
                    (defpackage uiop/os)
                    (defpackage uiop/pathname)
                    (defpackage uiop/filesystem)
                    (defpackage asdf/operate)
                    (defpackage asdf/lisp-action)
                    ;;(require :asdf)

As you can see, creating some dummy packages and excluding ASDF worked (of course you need to test if your app still works this way).
