It's possible that you need to use the ECL library to resolve the
function's symbol to the actual C function, or possibly using
ecl_funcall().  I assume that your main application is linked against
libecl, such that you can dlopen() ECL-built libraries.  Normally when
ECL FASL are loaded by ECL, an initialization function is called which
updates the environment such as symbols.  Perhaps that loading a FASL
using the ECL library would also be easier because of this.

But I admit I have no experience with using such ECL-built shared
libraries and custom-loading them.
