The available CMUCL binary core dumps on IRIX 6.5 . I haven't seen
an SBCL binary for this platform either, so assuming the MIPS backend
is still there, I hope the SBCL runtime can still be made to run on it
w/o requiring a heroic effort.

I only have IRIX.
I'm still interested in getting SBCL working, even if CMUCL requires
itself, and not some "good or close enough" lisp. Now, the two things I
require to do w/o CMUCL for the time being would be the emacs
connectivity, and COMPILER-LET.
