	I never doubted that.  ;-)

	That translates to /usr/local/ccl/tools/asdf-install on my system.

	Despite having done this previously, your suggestion resulted in a  
solution.  I had previously confirmed that /usr/local/ccl/tools/asdf- 
install and /usr/local/asdf-install were both in asdf:*central- 
registry*.  I went back to double check and noticed that the /usr/ 
local/ccl/tools/asdf-install contains one .asd and several .lisp files  
while /usr/local/asdf-install contains only the subdirectories site  
and site-systems.  The site subdirectory contains subdirectories with  
package versions in their names which in turn contain .asd files.  The  
site-systems subdirectory contains non-versioned .asd files.

	I changed my ccl-init.lisp file to:

(require :asdf)
(pushnew #P"/usr/local/ccl/tools/asdf-install/" asdf:*central-registry*
          :test #'equal)
(pushnew #P"/usr/local/asdf-install/site-systems/" asdf:*central- 
          :test #'equal)
(asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :asdf-install)
(setq asdf-install:*verify-gpg-signatures* nil)

(note the 'site-systems' path component).  Success!  I can now load  
hunchentoot, and any other asdf installed package, with (asdf:oos  
'asdf:load-op :hunchentoot).

	Thanks very much to everyone who answered my questions.
