[Openmcl-devel] ccl and asdf-install (wiki hints)

I am now struggling with learning asdf and asdf-install. (I confess that I am still pretty much stuck at the beginner level with CL, so be kind....)

Anyway, on the page http://trac.clozure.com/ccl/wiki/HintsForAsdfAndOpenmcl it suggests this code for ccl-init.lisp (macports version):

(pushnew "ccl:tools;asdf-install;site-systems;"
        asdf:*central-registry* :test #'string-equal)
Shouldn't :test be #'equal instead of #'string-equal?

When I use #'string-equal I get errors test against asdf:*central-registry* because it's a pathname, if I understand correctly. Little bumps in the road like this throw me off more than they should, perhaps.

I see that asdf and asdf-install are much criticized by lots of lispers on the web. Are there better options?

Best,
