In theory, it shouldn't be too hard, as long as you have a working Common Lisp system. ECL or Clisp might Just Work. SBCL would require some porting effort (and there's a known bug on MIPS that I haven't gotten around to writing a test case for but is easy to fix), but that's one of the easier types of port to do.
