CCL doesn't know about UNC-style pathnames, so your strategy of mapping the network folder to a drive letter is the way to go.

http://trac.clozure.com/ccl/ticket/1086 <http://trac.clozure.com/ccl/ticket/1086> is a fairly old ticket requesting that ccl be enhanced to support UNC pathnames.

It might be worthwhile to make a GitHub issue for this if you want.
