[Openmcl-devel] Making asdf-install requireable

What would it take to make asdf-install requireable? In a somewhat
recent OpenMCL you get:

Welcome to OpenMCL Version 1.0-pre-050906b (DarwinPPC32)!
? (require :asdf)
? (require :asdf-install)
> Error in process listener(1): Module ASDF-INSTALL was not provided by any function on *MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTIONS*.
> While executing: REQUIRE
> Type :POP to abort.
Type :? for other options.
1 > :pop

? (describe '*module-provider-functions*)
Special Variable
EXTERNAL in package: #<Package "CCL">
Function: #<Unbound>
Plist: NIL

I don't know much about asdf or asdf-install, but I can learn. Is
there any OpenMCL-specific magic that I should know about before I
figure this out?

I'm hoping someday to be able to say
  (require :asdf)
  (require :asdf-install)
  (asdf-install:install 'mcclim)
  (asdf-install:install 'climacs)
but I know I'll have to be patient. The first two lines should be
doable right now, I think.
