It's a Lisp fast-load image, which traditionally was a memory dump of the
heap --- this is probably just the shared object version of that.  In any
case it is more like an executable than a data file, and is now invalid
unless ECL provides some way to poke inside it (unlikely).  It needs to be
removed and regenerated, however ECL does that (I, hm.  Have not done a lot
of Lisp, ignoring elisp, since the [unrelated!] MIT Maclisp).
