Not exactly, but compilation was a problem. ECL hardcodes the name of
certain functions and they can be directly called from C code, instead of
dispatching via the symbol. Unfortunately, some of those hardcoded names,
which only make sense at bootstrap, are still being used when compiling
your example. Will fix and upload a patch, either tonight or along the week.
