Re: [Gcl-devel] asdf

We're almost there — I'd like to delay the release of ASDF 3.1.1 until
it works perfectly with GCL (and hopefully gets shipped with GCL via
(require "asdf")); do you think we can achieve that this month?

Also, is there a way with GCL to combine several fasls into one? Maybe
by linking the .o's together? Is there a function to do that? If so, I
could enable asdf/bundle for GCL.
