I have a MacBook Pro, and CLISP via Fink (http://fink.sf.net)
currently doesn't compile on it.
I tried installing the CLISP version of Lispbox (http://
http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/lispbox/). It runs, but there seems to be
something funny going on under the hood. I ended up downloading the
SBCL version of Lispbox and replacing the PPC binaries with those
from the latest x86/Darwin build (http://wing.fruitfly.org/sbcl/
sbcl-0.9.10.37-darwin-x86-binary.tar.gz). This works like a charm.
SBCL will likely find its way into Fink (http://fink.sf.net) in the
next few weeks.
