That's correct; this problem is known as "phasing"; macros are defined in
their own compilation phase.  Each phase can only see macros defined in
earlier phases.

To define a macro for the macro environment, you can wrap it in a
begin-for-syntax block, or put it inside its own module and then
use import-for-syntax to import it in the module that uses it.
