you are right. sorry, that I missed that one... for the record: I followed the recipe outlined there 
(modify the Portfile, use CCL for bootstrapping etc.) and it in fact works. also for the record: the
SBCL build still takes non-negligible time and I first suspected it where hanging again. so one has 
to be patient for ≈5-10 minutes :).

thanks again for this pointer to which in fact helped to 
solve the issue for me.
