Do not use ECL from the build directory. Right after you finished
building it, use nmake .... install (where ... stands for whatever
flags you passed). It will create a directory "package" that you can
move and rename as you wish. It contains an executable, called
ecl.exe, which is the application you can use.

I did a quick test and using "nmake ECL_THREADS=1 ECL_UNICODE=1" and
the very latest sources (a couple hours old) I am able to load
alexandria. I did not try CFFI. It is late and I must give a talk
early tomorrow.
