Yes, this is described in the ASDF docs that I was reading yesterday
(when common-lisp.net wasn't down). I've tried that too. Specifying
the encoding at both the component and the system level. It doesn't
work. The approach I'm taking is to do this globally, and that isn't
working either.

Anyway, as it stands ASDF 2.x appears to be broken with regards to
specifying the external format for CCL anyway, since (my understanding
is that) you can't simply use

:external-format :utf-8

but need

:external-format '(:character-encoding :utf-8)

Which is one of the things I do, as in my message:

(setq asdf:*utf-8-external-format* '(:character-encoding :utf-8))
