Yes, lang/sbcl switched to a newer version of ASDF, which handles the
loading of modules differently.  I had hoped to patch the two
dependent ports that are now broken because of this as part of the
sbcl update, but I was coming under some pressure to update sbcl, and
I didn't have a lot of time. From my cursory look during the sbcl
update, I believe that this error can be fixed by patching the broken
dependent ports so that they issue a pathspec to the working directory
in the "require" statement in the Makefile, or by splitting eache of
the broken ports into two subports, one of which installs source code
in the system module directory, and another which subsequently
compiles it, as is done now for some of the cl-* ports.  I don't know
if there are other problems. When the ASDF port and other CL compilers
are updated to newer versions of ASDF, the broken ports will probably
not work with them, either.
