But for the second question i've still got no idea how to deal with that... It seems that cl-utilities library did a hack to asdf, and used another .asd file as a "SOURCE". This doesn't work on ecl... Any idea how to fix it? (I've temporarily removed that part and it worked fine).

This cannot be fixed. This is an abuse of ASDF and ECL has no way to learn which ASDF files it has to compile in -- which it should not, for ASDF should just be plain declarations of intentions, not code (see http://tream.dreamhosters.com/tream/musings/49-lisp/76-analysis-of-existing-asdf-files)

Well, actually my sentence is a bit too dramatic: it can be fixed... by changing the library and telling its maintainer to commit the change, which should probably be trivial: split out the code that is in ASDF  into a separate file and list it as a dependency!
