Yay! I managed to make XCVB create executable programs with ECL,

On ECL, it requires the fix that I posted a few hours ago.

Thanks again for your effort and your fix.
 
At that point, I'm interested in starting to pitch XCVB
to adventurous Lisp hackers. Maybe even as a way to build ECL itself?
For the latter, I might first have to port XCVB so it runs on ECL.

I do not understand why ECL would need XCVB to build itself? Right now it is using just one makefile to build the C library and one compilation file that builds all modules sequentially -- the bootstrap order is so delicate that separate files can almost never be compiled individually.
