| Actually, the latest version of MzScheme provides a compiler-to-C ["mzc"]

| is a ".so" file (a.k.a. DSO). Such files can later be linked into a running
| MzScheme session with the [non-standard] call (load-extension "").

  the question was about Allegro CL, not about MzScheme.

  personally, I don't think "Scheme" is the answer to _any_ Common Lisp
  question to begin with, but may just be me.
