Did you look at gnuchess? That's the chess engine that most GNU chess programs 
use.

A bit like Scheme then.

"In applications where performance is required at any cost, or when the goal 
is detailed tuning of a low-level algorithm, an imperative language like C 
would probably be a better choice than Haskell, exactly because it provides 
more intimate control over the exact way in which the computation is carried 
out."
http://www.haskell.org/aboutHaskell.html

Which explains nicely why gnuchess - the engine code - is in C.
:-)

Does your program allow users to play against the computer? If it does, it 
really ought to see about tying into gnuchess.
