I think CLISP 2.29-13 is too old. We use things like
(defstruct (:location (:type list) :named ...))
and older versions of CLISP don't like keywords as struct names.
CLISP 2.32 or newer should work. There are also some Linux specific
functions in swank-clisp.lisp. You probably have to comment them out
or provide MacOS versions (SET-SIGIO-HANDLER and ADD-INPUT-HANDLER
are currently not used; you can delete them).
It may also be a good idea to try SLIME with OpenMCL (if you have it
around) to see how SLIME is supposed to work.
