The following commands should get you to a working state:

% cd /path/to/ccl
% svn up
% svn revert lx86cl
% svn revert lx86cl.image
% ./lx86cl

If that works, do
? (rebuild-ccl :full t)

and that will bring you up-to-date.

If that doesn't work, I'd try checking out an entire new copy of ccl  
in some other directory, and seeing if that new copy works.

If *that* doesn't work, then I'm not sure what to say.  Did the lisp  
ever work for you?  Maybe some more information about your system  
(hardware and software) would ring a bell...
