Certainly there is. The basic function for doing this is
movitz-compile-file, which compiles the contents of a file into
*image*. You'll want to set up one of the emacs-modes, either my
movitz/movitz-mode.el (a rather ugly hack over Franz' ELI, and
requires ACL), or Luke's stuff in movitz/ide/ which presumably is
better although I don't use it myself so I can't vouch for how in-sync
it is with Slime etc (but patches are welcome).

As any lisper knows, incremental compiles is essential :) I regularly
do compiles, disassemble, macroexpand, dump-image-and-run-bochs,
etc. from inside emacs buffers.
