Has anyone ported StarLisp Simulator to MCL2.0? Help!

First of all, yes, I've got the latest version, ftp'ed days ago from the
cambridge.apple.com site.

Here's what I get when trying to run the make:
(several files are compiled/loaded)
Loading "smallAppDisk:MCL 2.0:StarLisp Simulator:f19:geometries.fasl"

Loading "smallAppDisk:MCL 2.0:StarLisp Simulator:f19:simulator-specification.fasl"

> Type Command-/ to continue, Command-. to abort.
> If continued: Retry finding package with name "NIL".
See the RestartsI menu item for further choices.

So I do a Restart:

Invoking restart: Make "NIL" be a nickname for package "*SIM-I"

(several files are compiled/loaded)

I tried editing the cold-boot.lisp file (I even purged all the declarations!),
and it still crashed the same way.

Has anyone succeeded at all?

(I'm not really into blasphemy, but why do C applications seem *so* much
easier to build and port than Lisp apps?  I've rarely not been able to port
C stuff, whereas the reverse is true for the *few* common lisp apps that are
out there. :^(  )

Thanks to anyone who can help.
