I resorted to self education (which is not too bad). However I still
got problems - just on a more complicated level. The macro now looks
like this:

(defmacro define-toggle (symbol value doc &rest args)
  "Declare SYMBOL as a customizable variable with a toggle function."
  (declare   (doc-string 3)   (debug t))
  (let* ((SYMBOL-toggle (intern (concat (symbol-name symbol) "-toggle")))
         (SYMBOL-name (symbol-name symbol))
         (var-doc doc)
         (fun-doc (concat "Toggles the \(boolean) value of `" SYMBOL-name
                          "'.\nFor how to set it permanently see this
variable.\n")))
    (let ((var (append `(defcustom ,symbol ,value ,var-doc)
                args
                nil))
          (fun `(defun ,SYMBOL-toggle ()
                   ,fun-doc
                   (interactive)
                   (customize-set-variable (quote ,symbol) (not ,symbol)))))
      `(list 'progn ,var ,fun))))

This seems to work, but if the call to define-toggle already has been
done then loading a file with this define-toggle gives trouble:

There is obviously something I got wrong in the evaluation order since
now, in this situation, the macro now tries to evaluate

  (progn rngalt-display-validation-header
rngalt-display-validation-header-toggle)

I expected it to redefine the defcustom and the defun instead.
Can someone please try to explain what is going on?
