Thank you.  I’m sorry to say that it did not work.

Actually it is not the “struct po_error_handler” but the
“struct po_xerror_handler” which I need.  I believe the “struct
po_error_handler” is not used anymore in current Gettext but I am not
sure.  varargs are not needed for “struct po_xerror_handler” (even
though support for them is desirable in general).

Hmm I tried mostly the same as you propose before for the xerror
handler and it did not work: fh-object-set! apparently did not have
any effect, i.e. a subsequent fh-object-ref returned 0 and on error
the callback handler function was called at address 0, causing a

Either way, I tried your code for “struct po_error_handler” and put it
in my dot.ffi to see if it works.

I inserted an

    (display (fh-object-ref eh-struct 'error)) (newline)

at this point at this point in the dot.ffi file.  Then when I ran

(use-modules (gettext-po))

from the REPL it printed 0, so presumably this does not work either.
It seems like the same issue.

By the way, what I forgot to mention is that I needed to replace

#include <stdlib.h>

in the gettext-po.h header file by

typedef long size_t;

otherwise “guild compile-ffi gettext-po.ffi” would fail with the error

ffi-help: WARNING: the FFI helper is experimental
(unknown):1: not found: "gnu/stubs-32.h"
compile-ffi: parse failed

So this change is needed in order to reproduce my issue.
