Hm. If both compilers (bytecode & C) are enabled, how can one select
which one should be used? Or which should be the default?

Somewhere I found that
"(ext::install-bytecodes-compiler)" works. This should probably be added
to the manual where compiliation mentioned

That seems to work now. And if I call ecl with
ecl.exe --eval "(ext::install-bytecodes-compiler)" [further parameters]
the bytecode compiler is called by default. Perhaps I am able to
crosscompile Maxima with it. There is no easier command line option (or
configuration value somewhere) for that?

Thank you.
