Sbcl runs for me on 7.0:
niobe% sbcl
This is SBCL 1.0.11, an implementation of ANSI Common Lisp.
More information about SBCL is available at <>.

SBCL is free software, provided as is, with absolutely no warranty.
It is mostly in the public domain; some portions are provided under
BSD-style licenses.  See the CREDITS and COPYING files in the
distribution for more information.

As for cmucl, the version in the ports is completely botched. You can
however run a recent precompiled version from the cmucl snapshots here:

There is a version for FreeBSD-7 and it allows to recompile the cmucl
source without any problem.

I have used it to compile maxima, it works very well and fast.
