Bug#623633: sbcl not loading asdf on startup
You should have seen the message below when updating to sbcl 18.104.22.168-2
sbcl (1:22.214.171.124-2) unstable; urgency=low
Starting with sbcl 126.96.36.199-2 common-lisp-controller has been dropped
from the sbcl packages. One of the results of this is asdf no longer
being available on startup. To get the old behaviour put `(require
'asdf)` in /etc/sbclrc

This is the exactly same behaviour you will get when installing sbcl
from upstream or in gentoo or arch linux. Of course the require could be
installed by sbcl into the global sbclrc or something like that *if*
there's a compelling reason to diverge here from upstream again.
