Oh, yes, please.  The -D <feature> is crucial here.

Nevertheless for whatever was dropped: it might be better to at least recognize and reject them with a specific message. Otherwise whatever build scripts will suddenly break with a rather generic message. This would be code which did work for quite a while. Might be hard to figure out why it broken.

Hi all,

apparently chicken-install lost the -D <feature> switch.

To put it mildly: This worries me a lot.

There is no bad intent behind this - during the rewrite simply a few options were dropped, since they didn't look crucial. If you want it back, no problem.
