Yes, I was able to find the SBCL one, but as I recall at the time it interacted badly with the FFI (uffi? Something like that? I don't remember the name), and it wasn't clear how to combine it with a build system like make. I'm sure it can be done, but it was inordinately difficult compared to, say, python, where creating standalone scripts is essentially the very first thing in the tutorial.

I'm confused by what you mean as "standalone." Do you mean that you created object code that allowed users without Python installed to run your script? Because if not, getting Clisp or another CL to run a script from the command line is almost as trivial as with Python.
