Jim, I think maybe the relevant part of the ECL manual is
the following (Section III, part 1, "Building libraries"):


There is a function to dump out an executable, but I seem to
recall (from when I asked this same question a while ago)
that there is a reason (which I forget) to prefer to merge all
the fasl's into a single fasl (Section 1.6.4) and then load
that via a script. Not sure if the merged fasl approach works
on Windows. Maybe it's better after all to dump an executable.

I never made any progress on this point so good luck on
this exploration & let us know how it turns out ....

Glad to hear from you & I hope all is well.
