Magic Incantations for Installing asdf-install in Clozure Common Lisp

I'm on my way to bed, but I wanted to document this first.
  1. Follow the instructions here:
  2. Skip the command "(asdf:operate 'asdf:compile-op :asdf-install)". It didn't run for me, but everything seems to work fine without it.
In my case, that means adding the following to my openmcl-init:
(require 'asdf)
(pushnew "/Users/matt/lib/asdf/" asdf:*central-registry* :test #'equal)
(asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :asdf-install)
None of the other results in Google had it quite right, and they sent me on an hour long wild goose chase.

Saying stuff like "(asdf-install:install 'md5)" now works.
