Here's a copy of an article I recently posted on comp.lang.lisp. Most
either already work in MACL, or the modifications needed are minor.

Subject: Portable Common Lisp Utilities
Keywords: portable common-lisp tools
This post describes four portable utilities for Common Lisp which are
available by anonymous ftp from a.gp.cs.cmu.edu in the directory
All have been placed in the public domain and are distributed without
warranty of any kind.
defsystem.lisp A portable system definition facility, similar
to the Symbolics system construction tool.
Documentation is in defsystem.ps.
logical-pathnames.lisp A portable implementation of the X3J13 June
1989 specification for logical pathnames, as
documented in Guy Steele CLtL2, section 23.1.5.
metering.lisp A portable code profiling tool, for gathering
timing and consing statistics while a program
is running. This is a combination of the Monitor
package written by Chris McConnell and the
Profile package written by Skef Wholey and
Rob MacLachlan, with a few extensions.
Documentation is in the first few pages.
xref.lisp A portable cross referencing tool for determining
callers of functions and variables, and for
maping out the structure of a program. Similar
to Symbolics Who-Calls and Xerox Masterscope.
Includes an interface to Joe Bates' Postscript
graphing tool (psgraph.lisp).
