I ran the tests but there is some problem in my setup and I get random
breaks of the build process -- totally unrelated to ECL --, but nothing
seems broken.

If your C-INLINE form lists a :fixnum as output, ECL can use the value
directly. But if you use, say, :long or :int, then it HAS to use
ecl_make_integer() because it does not know the value of the quantity -- it
does not matter whether you precede this with a declaration, it is in the
C-INLINE processor not the the compiler itself.
