You tried to call CCL::%NEW-PTR, which basically (a)  shouldn't exist
(b) doesn't work in compiled code and (c) can't be in the level-0 directory,
since it uses LOAD-TIME-VALUE (which doesn't work right in the cold load.)

There's a call to #_gtk_init in "ccl:library;openmcl-gtk-support.lisp";
you might find that helpful (especially in the context of the long reply
I sent last night.)
