More carefully look for compiled asdf.lisp.
Found that the current load recipe (load "../asdf") in the test scripts was brittle, because the presence of asdf.fasl was obscured if there was an "asdf/" directory in .. Unfortunately, the result of makeinfo --html asdf.texinfo created just such a directory! fe[nl]ix kindly provided a pointer to compile-file-pathname that solved the problem.
