    Anyone use Lisp at all on Mac OS X? I'm having a bugger of a time compiling Common Lisp 2.45 and was wondering if there was a good (free) binary distribution? The MacPorts version does not want to work either which is annoying.

    For the Scheme dialect, there's PLT scheme:

    PLT Scheme

    Downloading the Dr. Scheme package found there gives you everything you'd want.


    For clisp, I couldn't get the Mac Ports version to build the first time. I tried it a second time (as root without sudo'ing..relevant?) and it worked.

    I've got the MIT / GNU Scheme implementation installed. I just wanted a standard common Lisp implementation as well. Looks like Ready Lisp works. Thanks for the help.
