There are two issues:
1) REQUIRE's somewhat stupid: if it find a directory whose name matches
the module name, it complains about that (rather than ignoring the
directory or doing something else more reasonable.) There's a patch
in CVS that (IIRC) ignores the directory in that case.
2) ASDF-INSTALL depends on ASDF, as the documentation explains. ASDF
isn't magically integrated into REQUIRE in OpenMCL (though I believe
that people have suggested some ways that it could be.)
So, you have to:
a) explicitly require ASDF;
b) use ASDF to compile and/or load ASDF-INSTALL
