I have successfully removed the Grace preferences (there was nos fasl's)...

Then I've run

 "/usr/local/bin/sbcl --eval '(load 
--eval '(asdf:oos (quote asdf:load-op) "grace")' "

and got sbcl running, but have received this error from sbcl:

debugger invoked on a SIMPLE-ERROR:
  Error during processing of --eval option "(load 

  Don't know how to REQUIRE ASDF.
See also:
  The SBCL Manual, Function REQUIRE

Type HELP for debugger help, or (SB-EXT:QUIT) to exit from SBCL.

restarts (invokable by number or by possibly-abbreviated name):
  0: [CONTINUE] Ignore and continue with next --eval option.
  1: [ABORT   ] Skip rest of --eval options.
  2:            Skip to toplevel READ/EVAL/PRINT loop.
  3: [QUIT    ] Quit SBCL (calling #'QUIT, killing the process).

I've tried that too... and, after starting grace, configuring Grace to 
load sbcl /usr/local/bin/sbcl and starting lisp, I get the same error... :(

Any idea?
