Symbolics to Sun Port Questions

I have a few general questions, concerning OTHER LISP systems
for non-XL hybrid SUN class machines.
Do you mean "non-XL (hybrid Sun)" (i.e. a Sun hybrid with something
other than an Ivory) or "non-(XL hybrid) Sun" (i.e. a Sun that either
isn't a hybrid or is a hybrid with a non-Ivory)? From the remainder of
the message it appears that you are talking about unadorned Suns.
1) What other LISP environments are available for SUNs and
where can I contact them?
Sun Common Lisp is Lucid Common Lisp, and is sold by Sun. It includes
Flavors (old Flavors, I think) and an interface to Sun windows. The
upcoming version 4.0 should include CLOS. CLX is available for it, and
CLIM should be available soon.
3) Display translation or is it a total rewrite? What is
available out there that sits on top of X-Windows and what
kind of headaches am I looking at in converting my display
code? (ie: Common Windows is available with Allegro)
If your display code were using Dynamic Windows you'd be in luck, but I
don't think there's much hope for static windows code. CLIM is similar
to DW, and there's a package called Express Windows (I think that's the
name) that provides DW compatibility on top of X.
