Thank you so much!  I got it to work now:

(defmacro with-pointer-to-array-data ((ptr-var array) &body body)
   (let ((v (gensym)))
     `(let ((,v (ccl::array-data-and-offset ,array)))
        (unless (typep ,v 'ccl::ivector)
	 (ccl::report-bad-arg ,v 'ccl::ivector))
          (ccl:with-macptrs ((,ptr-var))
            (ccl::%vect-data-to-macptr ,v ,ptr-var)
            , at body)))))
