A bit off-topic, but have you ever tried compiling ECL with TCC? That
seems to be the best C compiler for use as a linkable library, but it
only has machine code generators for a few platforms.

It seems that not having a compiler around is a not unusual property
for Common Lisp deployment (ECL, Parenscript, Thinlisp, commercial
implementations, older implementations) and is something that the ANSI
standard is IMO too strict in requiring.
