[Maxima] Precompiled Packages?

Dear Maxima Contributors,
I am developing Euler, an system, which uses Maxima in the background. I am
now updating from 5.17 to 5.20.1, and everything worked except one problem:
In earlier versions, I compiled packages like "lapack" by loading it using
"maxima.bat". The object files were then sorted into the share directory,
and thus were precompiled. Now, Maxima changed this and the files compile to
the user profile home. This is a good idea, since users should not write to
the installation directory.
However, compilation does not work via Euler. I get numerous error messages
of missing include files. Euler sets the include path for Maxima to the
environment variable C_INCLUDE_PATH. But this does not work. I would like to
have them precompiled anyway.
What I need is
- a way to compile all packages that can be compiled
- make the *.o visible to Maxima in a subdirectory of share
Of course, I could experiment to compile everything, and install the result
along with Euler into the user profile. But there must be another way.
Thanks a lot
