I'm partial to both Forth and Lisp,  but newer, optimizing Forth 
systems tend to be a bit eclectic, and I haven't found a good, 
machine code generating Lisp system that's cross-platform.  The 
Windows port of CMUCL is apparently stalled.  I suspect the easiest 
option, or the one I'd have the most fun writing, would be a homebrew 
Forth.

An interesting option is C-- (see cminusminus.org).
