I'm fairly new to Lisp, and even newer to ECL, so I fully expect this
to be my fault and not ECL's. I'm trying to follow the manual
examples at http://ecls.sourceforge.net/new-manual/ch16s03.html and am
getting stuck at the (asdf:make-build ... ) line.
For some reason, my ECL session just can't find that function. I can
see it in the ECL sources (in contrib/asdf/asdf-ecl.lisp), and I've
googled for an hour or so to no avail. I've also tried this in a
newer version (9.6.1) on another machine, and get with just the same
error. 0.9j just happens to be on the machine I'm e-mailing from.
So, what's wrong with this:
;;; Loading #P"/usr/lib/ecl/cmp.fas"
;;; Loading #P"/usr/lib/ecl/sysfun.lsp"

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 on this box, and Ubuntu 9.10 on the other, and
have just installed the `ecl' package in both cases and typed "ecl".
Anyone care to put me out of my misery?
Many thanks in advance,
