Hi Gary,

I just tried to use ASDF-Install in 1.1-pre-070512 and ran into a snag.

ASDF-Install, to create a symlink, does

   (ccl:run-program "ln" (list "-s" ...))

`ccl:run-program' proceeds to call `ccl::native-translated- 
namestring' on the program ("ln"), which calls `ccl::translated- 
namestring', which calls `merge-pathnames'.  Alas, `*default-pathname- 
defaults*' is bound to something other than #P""', so that `ccl:run- 
program' winds up trying to run `/.../ln', which of course doesn't  
exist (for most values of `...'), and in any case the absolute path  
defeats shell path searching.
