[Openmcl-devel] Installation of ILisp

I am using OpenMCL 0.13.1 with Emacs and ILisp 5.12.0 on Mac 
OS X 10.2.2.
This is my .emacs file:

;; .emacs file (sven at beta9.be)

(global-font-lock-mode t)

(setq show-paren-mode t)

;; ilisp setup

(setq load-path
       (cons (expand-file-name "~/apps/ilisp-5.12.0")

(autoload 'run-ilisp
   "Select a new inferior Lisp."

(autoload 'openmcl
   "Select a new OpenMCL inferior Lisp."

(setq openmcl-program "/Users/sven/apps/ccl/scripts/openmcl")

(set-default 'auto-mode-alist
	     (append '(("\\.lisp$" . lisp-mode) ("\\.lsp$" . lisp-mode) 
("\\.cl$" . lisp-mode))

(add-hook 'lisp-mode-hook '(lambda () (require 'ilisp)))

(setq common-lisp-hyperspec-root
       (expand-file-name "~/apps/CommonLispHyperSpec/"))

(setq common-lisp-hyperspec-root
       (concat "file://" common-lisp-hyperspec-root))

(setq common-lisp-hyperspec-symbol-table
       (expand-file-name "~/apps/CommonLispHyperSpec/Data/Map_Sym.txt"))

(setq browse-url-browser-function

(setq browse-url-generic-program
       (expand-file-name "~/bin/openurl"))

;; initial frame customization

(setq initial-frame-alist
       '((width . 120) (height . 40) (font . "-*-Monaco-*-140-*")))

;; lisp indentation customization

(mapcar (lambda (x) (put x 'lisp-indent-function 'defun))
	'(with-open-file with-input-from-string with-output-to-string 

;; eof .emacs

The openurl script looks like this:

osascript -e 'open location "'$*'"'

But I think you can directly invoke AppleScript from Emacs now, so 
maybe the openurl hack is no longer needed: I'll have to look into that.
