src/maxima.system has the ECL-specific build stuff.
In particular look for BUILD-MAXIMA-LIB which calls ECL's internal
C::BUILD-PROGRAM to create an executable (instead of dumping
the image like other Lisps). Also see src/Makefile.am which calls
BUILD-MAXIMA-LIB. I think you can follow the instructions
in INSTALL.lisp and call BUILD-MAXIMA-LIB at the end.
Just a guess, I haven't tried it.
Some of the ECL-specific stuff in maxima.system was written by
Michael Goffioul who seemed to understand the ECL build stuff,
as opposed to me, who is just guessing. Searching the Maxima
mailing list archives for his name might yield his email address
or other info about ECL + Maxima.
