Actually, it seems to be a bug in merge-pathnames:

? (merge-pathnames "ccl:")

For the record:

Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.6-dev-r14251M-trunk  (DarwinX8664)!

? *default-pathname-defaults*
? (pprint (logical-pathname-translations "ccl"))

((#P"ccl:l1;**;*.*" #P"ccl:level-1;**;*.*") (#P"ccl:l1f;**;*.*" #P"ccl:l1-fasls;**;*.*")
 (#P"ccl:ccl;*.*" #P"/Users/ron/devel/ccl/trunk/*.*")
 (#P"ccl:**;*.*" #P"/Users/ron/devel/ccl/trunk/**/*.*"))

You can hack around the problem (at least for ASDF) thusly:

  (defun ccl::translated-namestring (path)
    (namestring (merge-pathnames (translate-logical-pathname path)))))

but the merge-pathnames code itself is too furry for me to tackle at midnight on a Friday.
