This is a limitation of the module system (which I hope to remove one
day soon). Work around it by adding `#:omit-define-syntaxes':

   (struct proc-struct (name args loe)

You could also use `struct' in a separate module that is imported with
`(require (for-syntax ...))', but maybe you want to keep everything in
one module.
