Another option is to use Termite, which is an integration in Scheme  
of Erlang's concurrency model, with some extensions such as process  
migration (see http://lisp-ecoop05.bknr.net/submission/19654).  You  
can then get Schelog (http://www.math.purdue.edu/~lucier/software/ 
schelog/) to run Prolog on top of Scheme.  This would give you a  
single environment to run Lisp, Erlang and Prolog.  Since all of this  
is based on Gambit-C, you get portability and good performance, and  
you can link with C/C++ code using the Foreign Function Interface.
