I can only advice to build ECL with debug flags (Set CFLAGS at configuration
time) and use gdb to debug the compilation process. Just get yourself in the
build/ directory, launch gdb, source .gdbinit and type

run  <--- this makes ECL run
(load "compile")  <-- this is already from the ECL prompt.

.gdbinit sets breakpoints in several functions related to errors.
