Steel Bank Common Lisp plugin for asdf version manager.
This plugin compiles SBCL from source. Depending on the speed of your system, this can take some time. In return, it will give you the flexibility to run and manage versions of SBCL you'd like to run, which will liberate you from the often outdated packages published for your system.
