Yup.  Sorry for not being clear.  Stefan has already explained the
problem really well.  See also (elisp) Compiling Macros:

"In order for compilation of macro calls to work, the macros must
already be defined in Lisp when the calls to them are compiled.  The
compiler has a special feature to help you do this: if a file being
compiled contains a `defmacro' form, the macro is defined temporarily
for the rest of the compilation of that file.  To make this feature
work, you must put the `defmacro' in the same file where it is used,
and before its first use."
