If you are running FreeBSD/amd64, then the answer is yes.  See the  
first paragraph on the following page: http://trac.clozure.com/openmcl

CCL doesn't run on any 32-bit x86 system yet.  Once we get CCL  
basically working on Darwin/x86, we'll almost certainly get it running  
on FreeBSD/x86 fairly soon afterwards.

By the way, the 32-bit x86 port is going to require a processor that  
has SSE2, at least initially.  (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE2#CPUs_supporting_SSE2 
  for a list of processors that have SSE2).
