You can either use the tcc extension
or you can put the code into a temporary file,, compile into a dll/so 
and load it dynamically (but that will grow the used code space,
because the loaded file can not be unloaded).
To call the code, you can define some glue code (using the ffi)
to invoke it via a function pointer).

Besides using tcc, Chicken doesn't have an embedded C compiler.
