Common Music?  IMHO (although C is a lousy language for things like
this, so that's not surprising).  PLOB!, which, although free itself,
doesn't work with any free lisps.  PLisp (PostScript generator that
integrates PS into Lisp).

One of Garnet's down sides is that it uses its own object system,
instead of CLOS.  By the same token, one of the nicest things about it
is that it is fully integrated with a knowledge representation and
constraint maintenance system (that same object system).  I don't know
of any C systems that do the same, opens source or no.
