There were not so many things to fix after all:

* the typo you found
* missing :win64 keyword
* typo in _ecl_big_set_fixnum()
* wrong printf() statements in aclocal.m4

With all these, ECL seems to build fine on mingw32. The configuration step
is not the one you showed, but

./src/configure --prefix=... --build=x86_86-w64-mingw32

One needs to download and build separately the following components:
libatomic_ops (https://github.com/ivmai/libatomic_ops) , boehm-weiser
garbage collector (https://github.com/ivmai/bdwgc), and gmp 5.0.5 (stable

None of those libraries, as shipped with ECL, build on 64-bits/mingw.
Unfortunately I cannot upgrade them because then other ports would be
broken, and also because the required versions are unstable.
