Just as a sort of excuse, here is a direct quote from a knowledgeable 
person that gave me my impression that OpenMCL would not go to x86:

"Oh, and another good bootstrapping question is "What would be involved 
in porting openmcl to another platform?" Meaning another risc 
architecture with plenty of general-purpose registers, like to Sun or 
SGI boxen? (Porting to x86 or P* probably constitutes yet another 
question, and a less welcome one, because register allocation is so 
different. The answer to this one, I know: use some other lisp and 
write some libraries to ensure you can write to consistent lisp system 

It is possible I misread this.
