You might want to look into ASDF-Binary-Locations (http://common-lisp.net/project/cl-containers/asdf-binary-locations/ 
). It allows you to centralize your ASDF systems by putting the fasls  
into implementation-specific subdirectories. And it helps you avoid  
stale fasl errors when your favorite impl changes the fasl format.

I like ~/Library/..., but on my machine it (like ~/.sbcl/...) will  
just be a symlink to ~/.asdf-install-dir, so I don't have to remember  
which libraries have been installed for which implementations.
