You must have some other odd situation, I have this line in my .emacs:

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

So normally, M-x openmcl does this:

Starting /Users/sven/apps/ccl/scripts/openmcl ...
Welcome to OpenMCL Version (Beta: Darwin) 0.13.5!

When I evaluate the following sexp in emacs:

(setq openmcl-program "/Users/sven/apps/ccl/scripts/openmcl2")

Then, M-x openmcl does this:

Starting /Users/sven/apps/ccl/scripts/openmcl2 ...
Can't exec program: /Users/sven/apps/ccl/scripts/openmcl2

So the value of openmcl-program certainly does matter.

What emacs are you using, with which version of ilisp, and what is your 
.emacs file ?
