That's correct, as SLIME developers refuse to offer stable releases  
and as SLIME seems to need constant massaging to fit the current  
versions of various Lisp implementations, it is no longer part of  
Aquamacs.  Instead, we supply SLIME as a separate plugin which comes  
in a point-and-click installer and is built from the SLIME CVS every

What works for me is M-x locate-library RET slime RET.  If it  
returns  /Library/Application Support/Aquamacs Emacs/SLIME/slime.el,  
it is using the plugin.
Btw, I use this with openmcl Version 1.2-r11300M  (DarwinX8664) and I  
haven't had any problems.
