Is CHICKEN_INSTALL_PREFIX intended to be used together with
CHICKEN_INSTALL_REPOSITORY? If I don't set CHICKEN_INSTALL_REPOSITORY,
extensions and .egg-info files end up in the canonical repository. Not

Should CHICKEN_INSTALL_REPOSITORY be implicitly set to
CHICKEN_INSTALL_PREFIX is set in the environment? In this case,
couldn't we just get rid of CHICKEN_INSTALL_REPOSITORY and use
