not sure whats going wrong  but it may be several things. first,  for  
more recent cm's (current in svn is 2.11.3) the pathname to cm.el is  
cm/etc/emacs/cm.el not cm/xemacs/cm.el

this is what i have in my emacs file that works fine on osx/aquamacs:

(require 'slime)
(add-to-list 'load-path "/Lisp/cm/etc/emacs/")
(setq cm-program "/Lisp/cm/bin/cm.sh -l sbcl")
(load "cm.el")
;(load "sal-mode.el")

then M-x cm should work.

you can also download the GraceCL app, its editor is quite emacs like,  
then only gotcha is that opening large files takes a long time due to  
the horrible way i have to implement syntax highlighting in juce.
