Further to your comments on vectors in function parameter interfaces,  I 
have a question:

/*  vector as typedef   How to declare corresponding c-type in scheeme?  */
typedef int test_type[2];  

/* vector inside structure.  How to declare the same in Scheeme?  */
struct { int __val[ 2 ]; } ;  /* vector embedded in struct */
