I'm new to slime.  I tried using it with this in my .emacs:

(setq inferior-lisp-program "/sw/bin/clisp")  ; Platform is Mac OS X 
(Panther).  CLisp is 2.29-13.
(add-to-list 'load-path (concat homedir "/el/slime"))
(require 'slime)
(add-hook 'lisp-mode-hook (lambda () (slime-mode t)))
(add-hook 'inferior-lisp-mode-hook (lambda () (inferior-slime-mode t)))

M-x slime RET produces:

Compiling file /Users/gknauth/el/slime/swank.lisp ...
WARNING in function SYMBOL-EXTERNAL-P in lines 701..707 :
Binding variable _ can cause side effects despite of IGNORE declaration
since it is declared SPECIAL.
;;  Loading file /Users/gknauth/el/slime/swank.lisp ...
*** - DEFSTRUCT: invalid syntax for name and options: (:LOCATION (:TYPE 
1. Break SWANK[2]>
*** - EVAL: the function CREATE-SWANK-SERVER is undefined

Am I doing something wrong?
