Thanks to everybody who answered my question.

After posting it, I found an example counter.c in the mathlink examples
directory of the Mathematica installation which does exactly what I need.
The trick is to define a global variable, and then its value is preserved
between the subsequent calls from Mathematica (as correctly pointed out
by Szabolcs Horv=E1t in his reply).
