I just went through this investigation for a student and after your very useful post above, got things working. For the benefit of the list the other problem in this case was that Ubuntu 9.10 default install doesn't include /bin/csh by default! This causes all the calls to gcc to fail in all.lisp as they all invoke csh.

>From a vanilla 9.10 Ubuntu install, the following were sufficient to get clm-4 up and running with the ALSA audio stack:

sudo apt-get install emacs23
sudo apt-get install slime
sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev
sudo apt-get install libpthread-stubs0-dev
sudo apt-get install csh

Hope this helps someone :)
