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
