OK, I've found my mistake. I had two directories with "lx86cl":
- one extracted from
has only the "compiler" and "contrib" subfolder, whilst is missing the
- the other I got by SVN, which has everything.
Running lx86cl and requiring ASDF from latter directory works. I
apologize for the inconvenience, but the shell prompt not showing me the
current directory confused me.

I've read the FAQ, but it seemed to me that this direction is about
rebuilding CCL, not running it.
Thanks everyone for your attention.
