I'm not sure this will do the trick.

it the environment variable CSC_OPTIONS added to the options given in the .egg file or does it overwrite them?

The former would count as a workaround, the latter not help in my case at all.

The use case of the -D switch, which I need first and foremost to support is code instrumentation. There are lots of yocto build recipes which compile differently when -Ddebug is given.

Peter is right: this makes determining the freshness of files harder. (In the case of yocto the bitbrake program can take care of that one. Chicken could mimic the trick. But that's certainly beyond chicken 5.0)

BTW: C5 is easily troubled if there are *.import.scm files from C4 in the same directory. The resulting error messages are horror. They compile but upon import we get something like "eval not avail".

While I'm all for improving things, let's keep an eye on feature creep. We are only fixing critical bugs here, not adding new features: those can go into 5.1.

Then we can drop that issue altogether until 5.1. One can pass the desired
features with CSC_OPTIONS already.

CSC_OPTIONS="-D foo" chicken-install the-egg
