The new release of Harlequin's LispWorks 4.0 might be the closest you
can get to. (
It can produce stand-alone Windows apps that you can freely distribute
without having to pay any royality fees.

Here is a quote from comp.lang.lisp about .EXE sizes:

>Hello world (text) 2.9 MB
>Hello world (popup window) 3.6 MB
>Othello (windowed application) 4.2 MB
>These are .EXE sizes, generated on Windows 95.

Hope that helps,
