This is a tricky issue, and to my knowledge, no one has satisfactorily 
solved it completely.

But you might consider using the new foreign interface (help desk for 
"foreign.ss"), which allows you to write C-like code *without 
compilation*. In general this is a more pleasant way to develop C 
extensions to PLT, though of course it may not be an option if you're 
using someone's existing C library.
