setting the CCL directly automatically (relative to app bundle) would  
make a lot of sense. Keeping a hardcoded path in the preference file  
can lead to hard to track issues. Could the cclDirectory simply be the  
directory containing Contents/MacOS/

If there would be a need to change the cclDirectory temporarily or  
more permanently maybe that could just be left to the init.lisp file?

ps: I had to zap the preference file (thanks Raffael) to make things  
work again.
