thats why its failing, for some reason sbcl cant find its asdf file.  
what version of sbcl are you using? sbcl normally ships with asdf  
included under its runtime library (/usr/local/lib/sbcl) for example  
on my machine installing sbcl gave me this:

for some reason your sbcl does not have asdf installed there or you  
dont have the /usr/local/lib/sbcl runtime support installed or your  
sbcl is looking for the runtime in the wrong place. i dont know why  
this is the case. gracecl needs asdf and (for sbcl) it also needs  
posix support. if you cant do

	$ sbcl
	* (require :asdf)
        * (require :sb-bsd-sockets)
        * (require :sb-posix)

the startup will fail. as i say all of this is part of the normal sbcl  
binary distribution as you can see here:

zippy:src hkt$ sbcl
This is SBCL 1.0.12, an implementation of ANSI Common Lisp.
