the error occurs because c-pointer objects are expected as
arguments to gtd6.  you can use let-location to make c-pointer
objects pointing to scheme data.  imho the following should work:

(define gtd6
  (foreign-lambda integer "gtd6_"
                  (nonnull-c-pointer integer)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer float)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer float)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer float)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer float)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer float)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer float)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer float)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer float)
                  (nonnull-c-pointer integer)

    ([iyd   integer 138]
     [sec   float   345.0]
     [lat   float   50.0]
     [alt   float   100.0]
     [lon   float   50.0]
     [stl   float   100.0]
     [f107a float   150.0]
     [f107  float   150.0]
     [ap    float   8.0]
     [mass  integer 48])
  (let ([d (make-f32vector 8)]
        [t (make-f32vector 2)])
    (gtd6 #$iyd #$sec #$alt #$lat #$lon #$stl #$f107a #$f107 #$ap #$mass d t)))
