Sorry, I still have not finished porting ECL to my free copy of Visual 
C++ and hence I cannot help about this particular bug.

Until Michael provides a better solution, I would recommend you though 
to configure ECL without clx (which in Windows is little used, 
probably). Just edit ecls/msvc/h/config.h.msvc6 removing the "#define 
CLX 1" and remove all references to clx and clx.fas in the Makefiles.
