Cross platform distribution?

I've been very interested in locating an easy to distribute, cross
platform gui library that will allow for gui development in common
lisp. After finding out about tclkits and seeing how small they
are, I get the impression that this goal is reachable via
distribution of the platform specific tclkit along with a common
lisp image (with ltk configured to locate the supplied tclkit). I
didn't find an archive of this list, and from what I've read in ltk
docs, it seems like this concept is easily supported, but I am
rather new to common lisp and tcl/tk. Given that I am new to common
lisp, I don't necessarily know what part of the ltk code I need to
read in order to figure out how to invoke a local instance of tcl/tk
(let alone make a connection to a remote-tcl).
I am open to anything, if someone has walked this path before and
knows of some documentation that might be illuminating, I'm all
ears. In addition, if anyone has any suggestions about how I might
go about this whole cross platform gui common lisp development
effort more easily, I'm also all ears.
My short term goal is to produce enough material to run the ltkdemo
(or at least, my own hello world code) from a lisp image that
references a supplied tclkit on at least osx and windows.
