yes. asdf is the direction all of the lisp systems are adopting.

asdf is a tool that allows you to build lisp systems from a tree
of requirements. it has the advantage of giving you the full power
of the language to specify your requirements.

the autoconf/automake facilities are fine if you write C code
but fail when you try to use lisp code. centuries ago axiom was
moving toward a mk-defsystem but never got there. 

asdf will also allow us to import tools from the web rather than
package them with the distribution.

if you look at
you'll see that the common lisp world is coming together to form 
proper libraries and tools.

if you look at$Np5/sdataQu3F$sSHnB==
you'll see axiom listed.

this is all being managed by the lisp gardener's group.
