Huh. Way back when I started working on CL in guix, I wondered why
the ccl package didn't include asdf. Now I have a reason to investigate

Guix isn't doing anything special. After having investigated, my guess
is that CCL_DEFAULT_DIRECTORY is set in your environment. This variable
determines how ccl looks up pathnames with the 'ccl:' prefix. You can
check '*module-search-path*' to see which pathnames are being searched
for asdf. The other possibilities are that you have asdf in
$HOME/openmcl/modules, or that you've extended '*module-search-path*'
in your initialization file, and placed asdf somewhere there.

If you'd like to see how the guix ccl package acts in the absence of
your environment, you can run it like this:

$ guix environment --pure --container --ad-hoc ccl -- ccl

The attached patches aim to address the problems. The first is that our
ccl package was not installing any libraries. I'm not sure if we should
be trying to compile these libraries first; I wasn't able to find
anything in the build system to suggest such. The second patch ensures
that the environment always points toward the executed ccl image's
directory, which I believe is in line with the guix philosophy of
"static" package behaviour.
