I too would like to get Open Music working, have been waiting for the v5
release on linux for a long time.  But I get cannot yet get clg compiled.
The installation instructions are strange:

 1. Download Thomas Burdick's Alien Function package<B9> and restore it
      to a directory on your machine.
   2. Compile the Alien Function package and save a new sbcl.core image:

      $ cd sbcl-af
      $ sbcl --load "system"
      * (sb-ext:save-lisp-and-die "/tmp/sbcl.core")
      $ cd /usr/local/lib/sbcl
      $ cp sbcl.core sbcl.core.orig
      $ mv /tmp/sbcl.core .

I cannot find "Thomas Burdick's Alien Function package" using google and
there is no link provided, so I am stuck.. and waiting to see if others have
any success.
