Hi Marco,

I ported Portable AllegroServe for OpenMCL a few months back. It has 
an ACL compatibility module that works for LispWorks, MCL, CMUCL, and 
OpenMCL. This provides a standardized way (well, ACL's way) of 
dealing with sockets and processes for all of the different 
platforms. At the very least it should provide some good examples to 
get you started.
