Adlai Chandrasekhar has put some work into renewing the Lispbox bundle;
in particular, he added ClozureCL into the mix which works on Windows,
too, and integrates much better into Slime.

The sources can be found at http://github.com/adlai/Lispbox

I'm not sure how accurate the build instructions are (README.source
contains a link to Slime 1.2...)

Perhaps Adlai also provides prebuilt packages. I CC'd him.
