Hmm, I think it's time to think about the goals of the port. Since Quicklisp
depends on ASDF you might declare that you only support Lisp with
ASDF-support. Once this decision is made, dir-setup.lisp can be reduced

(defparameter *clm-src-dir*
  (asdf:component-pathname (asdf:find-system :clm))
  "Directory holding CLM source files")

(defparameter clm-directory     *clm-src-dir*)
(defparameter clm-bin-directory *clm-src-dir*)

In general, quicklisp should not show up in any of the files, it's only
a system to distribute code and manage code dependencies. ASDF is all
you need. Once ASDF works Quicklisp works as well.

As a side note, I'm always a bit queazy having build parameters in the
global namespace. Why not put "package.lisp" on the first palce in the
list of components in "clm.asd". Then you could move "dir-setup.lisp" et
al. into the CLM package.
