It appears that the FindingLisp statement may be incorrect, or at least oversimplified. It says "Like I said previously, I really like CLISP, and I use it for developing on Windows, but the license is not suitable for all code since it all-but-forces your code to be released as GPL." However, the CLISP Summary says, in part: "You may distribute commercial proprietary applications compiled with CLISP, see file COPYRIGHT in the CLISP distribution."
Having gotten that out of the way...
This is a technical issue with Common LISP. (I don't know whether it is an issue with other flavors of LISP. I suspect it is.)
There's this interesting quirk about Common LISP (of which CLISP is just one implementation). It contains a function, EVAL, that can evaluate ANY well-formed LISP expression, and it contains a compiler, and they are both available AT RUN TIME. Under certain conditions, the Common LISP runtime may be required to compile a brand-new function, created on the fly, as part of running your application.
Because of this, a compiled binary executable (your application) must include a big chunk of the Common LISP implementation, so it can make EVAL and the compiler available to the application. At that point, you are effectively linking your application with their code, to make your binary, and you will be redistributing THEIR code along with your code, and you are only allowed to redistribute THEIR code under the conditions imposed by THEIR license.
In the case of CLISP, that's the GPL. If you don't want to GPL your code, use a different (presumably commercial) implementation of Common LISP (Allegro comes to mind), and pay for the runtime licensing.
This is explained in considerable detail in the early chapters of Paul Graham's "On Lisp".
