Now that you mention it I remember encountering this problem as well. 
No need to reinstall clsip. Just get the "dlcompat" package which is 
available via Fink dselect. I think once that is installed everything 
will work (famous last words!). Apparently this wasn't set up as a 
dependency for clisp.

I found using clisp less than satisfying for work with CLM/CM on 
MacOS X but your experience may differ. I got used to MCL and Rick 
Taube's plotter, so moving to clisp was a bit unpleasant.

Someday some other LISPs should become available for MacOS X. I have 
tried out OpenMCL but I haven't attempted to build either CLM or CM. 
Right now OpenMCL claims to lack support for dynamic loading 
unloading of libraries. Maybe dlcompat offers a solution to that
