Please don't take offense at the word 'broken' here -- the test code
is very helpful!  I'm continually expanding my own understanding, and
I was just trying to get to the bottom of why f- called its macro
function on two integers when the file was loaded :-).  Turns out the
windows maxima issue is now known and is completely separate -- we are
not relocating .rodata symbols in sfasl.c.

Thanks again for all your help here and everywhere!

Take care,
