S-SYSDEPS is an abstraction layer over platform dependent functionality. This simple package is used as a building block in a number of other open source projects, as can be seen from this description of some other Open Source Common Lisp packages.
S-SYSDEPS is considered stable code.
November 2005 - Created as a seperate project.
S-SYSDEPS is, by definition, written in ANSI standard Common Lisp but implemented using non-standard extensions. At the moment, ports for LispWorks (reference), OpenMCL, CMUCL and SBCL exist. Some other CL implementations are partially supported.

The S-SYSDEPS package is loaded using ASDF. There is an excellent tutorial on ASDF to get you started. Alternatively you can use ASDF-INSTALL. There is an great tutorial on ASDF-INSTALL to get you on the way.
