There is a shareware Common Lisp for the Mac called "PowerLisp".
Please note: the "Power" in its name is a coincidence; I'm not 
aware of any special support for PowerPC's. It's in cambridge.apple.com:
pub/mcl/contrib/powerlisp-1.1.hqx, or read powerlisp-about.txt.

MCL 2.0.1 should run just fine on PowerPC's under emulation mode. 
You need to turn off the "New Memory Manager". If you want to 
run with virtual memory, you'll need to get the MMU5 patch
from /pub/mcl/patches/.
