  Thanks to you all. In fact, the student found by himself that the problem
came from his environment. He has switched to the Lion MacOS 
distribution and
not updated the XCode package.

So now it is working fine.
Thanks again for you quick answers.

> J'ai résolue le problème avec slime, sous l'os Lion il faut le Xcode de l'appstore fait pour lion, j'avais l'ancienne version pour Snow léopard  et du coup il manquait un paquet (GNUmake ou makeGNU). Le problème n'était pas slime mais directement sbcl ( et pourtant il marchait) mais il lui manquait ce paquet pour qu'il puisse tourner avec emacs je pense.
