That would probably be me. Beware, the patch isn't polished. There
are a few things I'd like to fix, but I don't have the ECL source
handy at the moment:
o The default compiler is set to g++. This is wrong.
o There is a huge list of magic built-in functions. There should be a
better way of registering all native ECL functions (in C++ we have to
avoid multiple declarations so we need to track which functions are
already declared). I don't know if this is easily fixed.
o Lots of debugging crap is written to the generated header files -
stuff like "function X was already declared so I won't declare it once
