You must use the function
        /* Returns LONG_MIN if not an integer */
        long STk_integer_value_no_overflow(SCM x);

This function returns LONG_MIN if x is not an integer nor a bignum.
As its name says it doesn't test overflow at all that means that it returns
always a value, even if x is out of the range of valid longs.
Hope it helps
