Considering that they dont support osx/unix pathnames or unix eols
via a hack it shouldn't be suprising! Long term openmcl is the way to go
its free, has native threads and its complier is better.
Really, at this point OpenMCL + aqua Emacs + listener.el is about as
easy to
work with as MCL.  Do this:

1    install openmcl 0.14:
2    install an Aqua Emacs: http://www.mindlube.com/products/emacs/
3   download cm-2.4.1 from CVS
4   get a shell, cd to your cm install dir and do
    % bin/cm.sh -l openmcl -e Emacs

thats it. Cm will compile/load and startup in its own window under
and if you want it to behave exactly like Fred/MCL add these to you

  (global-set-key [(alt g)] 'isearch-repeat-forward)
  (global-set-key [(alt w)]
                  (lambda () (interactive) (kill-buffer
  (global-set-key [(alt .)] 'keyboard-quit)
  (global-set-key [(alt z)] 'undo))

once I have the tarball of cm-2.4.1 (monday at the latest) ill make an
binary release complete with its own dockable icon
